Gluten free beer
« on: January 14, 2021, 09:48:50 AM »
Hi guys!
I have celiac disease and i haven't been able to enjoy good beer anymore so i have decided to brew it myself. I have read Mikkel Borg Brersø's book and studied home brewing for some time now. I am considering using millet malts, corn malts and buckwheat malts, i like the taste of buckwheat and corn, but i got the assumption those two would not do the job alone so i want to use millet malts also. Oat is a no go for me i can't tolerate that either. Rice? Mmeh. I like corn and buckwheat breads, so would they make a good beer? Haven't decided on hop qualities. Also yeast starter needs to be gluten free, but i can make that from millet malt i guess. Can you give me some advice or your two cents of gluten free beer?

Thanks!

Check out Brewers Clarex, it is an enzyme which reduces or eliminates gluten from beer. It supposedly has not over all flavor effect and is easy to use.

I'm an oddball, always asking for extra gluten.
But here is a link that might be of interest to you:
