If I read correctly, the papain stuff is banned by the FDA. But I know health food stores carry papaya enzymes in tablet form. I could crush them up, but then I'd feel like I was making Meth.

Seems its banned as a topical ointment. Didn't say anything about pill form. You could try crushing the pills. I may even try juicing a couple papyas and adding the juice at the beginning of the mash. Anyone notice the concentrations in the fruit?

I crushed some pills but was making a lighter beer and concerned with the flavors of the papaya since it would stand out. Going to run a test adding it to 5g of water and boil it up to see how much flavor it could impart.

I'd just like to throw it out there that Colorado Malting Company is now selling a full range of gluten-free specialty malts, including roasted and crystal malts. 5 lb minimum order. I've pretty much abandoned enzyme-based mashes of unmalted grains, myself.

Not sure about their shipping, if I recall it's not too bad if you order a decent quantity. I ordered about 90# of various specialty grains, came out to about $0.98/lb for shipping cost, or around $89 total. Not bad.

I don't mean to come off like I'm trying to promote their product, it's just reaaaaaaalllllllly friggin' exciting to me that I can just *buy* any kind of specialty grain now. Assuming their grains are high-quality, that means I can literally make any kind of beer I want now, with proper color and (presumably) proper flavor. I haven't used their crystal yet so I can't necessarily endorse it, but in the coming months I'll definitely have something to report. I ordered 25# each of crystal 20 and crystal 60, as well as 25# of black patent millet malt and 5# of black unmalted buckwheat rated at 400 SRM (plus some pale millet malt to compare to Grouse). I have no idea why this entire board isn't creaming its collective shorts over this, because to me, this is pretty much the start of the revolution!

I am wicked excited but I have a shoe string budget. I can justify my specialty grains though them but my base I will have to make myself. Still in the experimenting stage and plan on converting some of my regular recipes over to GF.

The GF Revolution is kicking off for sure and this just brings us one step closer

O man, I'm creaming..... wait.... edit that later.

I already contacted my lhbs about it. Should be getting it in soon. I cannot wait! I'm tired of taking hours out of my day to make black and crystal malts.

Just curious, what was the cost per lb after shipping? I'm not sure what they actually charge per pound. If I'm nice enough to my lhbs, I can get a 50# sack for like $70-$80. Wondering if that's good? Seems like it. Normal price is $3/lb.
