I am in love with Stouts and Porters (especially the latter), but as of the past 4 years haven't been able to consume gluten.

I am looking for a couple recipes to try out to find something that tastes similar to my old favorites:

  • O'Dell's - Cutthroat
  • Breckenridge - Vanilla Porter
  • Southern Tier - 2x Stout
  • Founders - Porter
  • Breckenridge - Oatmeal Stout


Also, if there's anything being sold out there that you know of, I am always looking for new GF beers to try.


Cheers!

Have you tried Greens Dubbel Dark? That one is excellent. I too prefer dark beers and am venturing in that way. I remember Iglashion posting a No Nonsense Stout and someone else posting a Dual Spires Black Lodger. Search those and see what comes up. Also, according to fellow homebrewers the twang inherent in the Sorghum extract actually goes well with the stout.

I have Igliashon's No Nonsense (Oatmeal) Stout in the works, about ready to bottle. Easy enough to make and seems like something you could doctor up a bit to your liking since it's pretty basic. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Here's a link to his blog/recipe:

I agree with this 100%. I've made 3 batches of this, essentially just as he describes it, and it's very good.

I just had my first Greens Dubbel Dark this weekend and was very impressed. Now I see this post. I was satisfied with pale beer thinking that it just was not possible to make darker gluten free beer but now I think it is at least possible to get closer. Just need to get to roasting grain.

I don't know what those taste like but here is one that we served for the first time tonight, it is a recipe that I created after reading a lot of other recipes and brewing several other GF batches after tasting this batch on the next batch I will add some more aromatic hops and will double the GF oats I might even toast some of the oats to a darker level to add some more color, I may reduce some of the other fermentables and increase the dark syrup. but my daughter says I'm getting very close to something she drank in England before she had to go GF

I'm not sure roasting gfree grains/pseudo cereals actually make a dramatic difference in color. Candi syrup is your best bet. Greens is amazing I know!

roasting is not for color it is for flavor I was tired when I typed the first post the idea was on the roasting is to bring out the nutty flavor that roasting creates, the candy sugar is for the color

Are you going to just toast the buckwheat, or malt aswell? I have found that my crystal malt lends a lot of chocolatey/coffee flavours to it. I am going to be testing this probably next weekend, along with making my own dark Belgian candi syrup. If you are not malting it, just try soaking it for an hour or so and roast as if you were making crystal malt. See what you get.

Edit: Just noticed you aren't using buckwheat. I am confusing myself with another post. Still, you could do the same with oat or millet?

Tex60 is using buckwheat. Look at the notes at the bottom of the recipe. He doesn't list them with the grains and adjuncts. Most interesting thing is they are steeped in room temp water instead of hot water. Have not seen that technique.
