I know he attends the NHC. If you're planning to attend you could meet him there. Of course that's not until June. He has posted here a few times but hasn't been on in a good while now. I think he is on this blogspot now and again. http://www.examiner.com/beer-in-national/charlie-papazian

...and I can't forget to include his blog on craftbeer.com

Quinoa diastatic power.  I'm not certain, but believe it is pretty low at best.  Malting quinoa on its own is messy.  Better to add barley malt to help.  Or use enzymes.  I think.

Yeah, I agree, that needs to be changed to Brewing Buddha or something! But that's an Admin's job, I don't know how to do anything like that.

Whoa, a lightning bolt from the sky.....

Let me thank you for writing the book that gave me the right attitude..... DWHAHB is etched in gold around here.  ;D

Pleasantries over..... ;)

My friend has been recently diagnosed as a celiac, and yes I have read all the disclaimers, and yes I know that celiacs are all different and some can tolerate some gluten, and some go toxic when someone bakes a loaf of bread within a 5 miles radius and yes, you are not a doctor nor are you guaranteeing anything to be etc. etc.....

That said.....

He is willing to be a guinea pig. So, in the last issue of Zymurgy you have that recipe that caught my eye. I understand the concept. Not gluten free, but gluten removed. The clarity ferm drops out the proteins, including the ones that kill the celiacs.

Now the question (yes I know, finally)

The recipe, aside from the fact that it has no other grains than barley, really has no impact on the concept, right? I mean I can take my house APA (some 2 row, some crystal malt and some carapils, with simcoe and cascade, wye 1056) and as long as I am using the clarity ferm according to the instructions the result may/should be a negative presence with a gluten test, am I correct?

And I did order the EZ Gluten test.....

Plan is to do a 10 gallon batch of a beer I am familiar with, then do one bucket "normal" and one bucket  with the clarity ferm. Run the test on both, and, put them side by side for taste comparison..... Sounds like a plan?

Thanks...

(And thank you, you know who you are, for getting the man's attention.....8) )

Just trying to help out a fellow man..... maybe that helps. There's a lot of work to be done here. I hope Charlie may be on to something that would make a lot of people's life a little bit more bearable. Personally I don't have celiac, but I do have something that precludes me from enjoying certain foods and beverages, like coffee, and orange juice..... :o :o :o, so I can sympathize. (Ironically, beer is on my shid list but I am tolerating it, very well    ???..... there is some occasional justice, and mercy..... 8) )
