Blonde Annie’s

Just because you may have an intolerance for gluten doesn't mean you cannot enjoy the love of craft beer and homebrewing! Here's a great recipe to try for a Blonde made with a gluten-free brand of oatmeal. Note: This recipe contains oats. Most commercially available oats are processed with wheat in the factory and are therefore not recommended for a gluten free diet. However, there are certain gluten-free brands of oatmeal that are available.
