Gluten Free Home Brewing – dedicated GF Homebrew Shop – $5 Off

pale rice malt

A notable percentage of people have some motivation to reduce or completely eliminate gluten intake.  Reasons vary from dietary choice to gluten sensitivity to serious medical conditions including auto-immune diseases like Celiac Disease.  This may describe you or a friend or family member.

Although commercial gluten free and reduced options are increasing in number, they are still few and far between.  That’s even more true when it comes to gluten free homebrewing supplies.  Only a few homebrew shops carry supplies and those supplies are generally slim.

Enter Gluten Free Home Brewing.  GFHB is a shop dedicated to offering gluten free supplies and brewing resources.  Cross contamination is an issue for those with more serious allergy-like conditions.  GFHB is dedicated gluten free so there is no risk of CC with gluten containing ingredients.

Ingredient offerings include – malted gluten free grains… malted millet (pale, CaraMillet, crystal millet, medium, chocolate, dark roasted), buckwheat malt from Grouse Malting Company and Eckert Malting’s malted rice – crystal, amber, James’ brown, dark, gas hog, biscuit – and more.  Along with ready made recipe kits (both extract and all grain) hops, yeast and more.

Gluten Free Home Brewing also offers how-tos, tutorials on GF Brewing along with a recipe sharing platform.

As of this posting, promo code GF5beer takes $5 off your GFHB order.

[Gluten Free Homebrewing] – Gluten Content of White Labs Liquid Yeast

A notable percentage of people have some motivation to reduce or completely eliminate gluten intake.  Reasons vary from dietary choice to gluten sensitivity to serious medical conditions including auto-immune diseases like Celiac Disease.  This may describe you or a friend or family member.

Recently Gluten Free Watchdog tested gluten content of a pitch of White Labs Liquid Yeast.  White Labs does not mark their yeast gluten free.  However they do say that yeast slurry in the package is below 20 ppm (their analysis is 12 ppm).  Under 20 ppm is considered gluten free, although some products (like yeast made with malted, could not legally be labeled gluten free in the US).

Gluten Free Watchdog, found “well above 20 parts per million”

Related News… A new research study has been conducted by the Gluten Intolerance Group studying the effects of “gluten removed beers” on those with Celiac Disease.  These are beers brewed with traditional gluten containing grains but treated with an enzyme (ClartiyFerm or Brewers Clarex on the commercial scale).  The results weren’t great.  See: “Gluten-Removed” Beer May be Unsafe for People with Celiac Disease – for whatever reason the study link in that article isn’t working.  Read the Study: The Celiac Patient Antibody Response to Conventional and Gluten-Removed Beer

Brewing with Millet via Scott Janish

img_0844-768x1024

If you don’t follow Scott Janish… I think you should I really enjoy his homebrewing articles.  Many are analytical in nature.  Check out his website (link below) and also check him out on Twitter at @scottjanish.

Scott put up a new article… “Brewing With Millet”.  For that… He sources grains from Gluten Free Homebrewing, he also uses a Spunding Valve to dry hop under pressure.

Millet belongs to the same grass family as barley, maize, and sorghum. It’s said to be a versatile crop because of its ability to thrive in harsh conditions. One source mentioned that millet is one of the oldest crops known to humans, possibly dating back to 2800 B.C! There are numerous varieties of millet, with proso millet (Panicum miliaceum L.) “common millet” is likely what you will find at a place like Whole Foods or a local organic market in bulk (this is what I was able to find). There doesn’t appear to be a vast amount of research done on brewing with millet, but from what I could locate, it does appear to produce acceptable beers. Across the literature, millet was often compared very closely to sorghum, which has been used in many parts of the world mainly in European-type lagers.

One reason some might want to experiment brewing beers with millet is because it’s gluten-free. Other carb-rich grains that could be used in brewing that don’t contain gluten are buckwheat, amaranth, and quinoa (I’ve experimented with quinoa with good results, although as a part of a barley grist). Oats can be tolerated by most, but not all people intolerant to gluten. The gluten content of beers is fairly low considering the high amounts present early in the brewing process (6,864 ppm present in wort going all the way down to around 200ppm in finished beer or around 1.9%).  [KEEP READING – on Scott Janish.com]
