My dad gave me my first homebrew kit. To say thanks, I would always make him an amber ale or red ale when he would come to visit. But after I went gluten free, getting a similar red hue and chewy malt flavor into a beer proved challenging.

Nonetheless, my gluten-free version won Ground Breaker’s 1st Annual Pacific Northwest Gluten-Free Homebrew Competition. It went on to score a 36 in the First Round of the National Homebrew Competition and recently won a blue ribbon at the Oregon State Fair. It’s a tasty beer and, most importantly, Dad loves it.

If the color turns out less red than desired, add small amounts of D-90 candi syrup to add color.
