New: Grouse Malting Co Goldfinch Millet Malt [Gluten Free] – save $4

Goldfinch Millet Malt - 2 LB

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.

More Info

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.

 

New from GFHB – Goldfinch Millet Malt – “Maple and bran flavors coupled with slight toasty cereal, honey and caramel tones. Perfect addition to Pale and IPA grain bills.”  This malt is featured in Ghostfish Brewing Company‘s Goldfinch IPA.

As of this posting, promo code GoldShirt takes $4 off two lbs of Goldfinch Millet Malt.

Announcing: New Economy In-line Secondary CO2 Regulator at love2brew

inline regulator

Love2brew has released a new economy inline CO2 regulator

About, from love2brew… “Our Single Gauge In-Line Secondary Regulator is an ideal way to split your gas lines and regulate your beers at different pressures and/or a cheap starter regulator for those of us brewing on a budget. A single, easy to read, gauge adjusts from 0 – 100 PSI giving you all of the options you could want for beer, cider, wine, mead, or soda! Comes with two (2) 5/16″ barbs that will work with our 5/16″ Beverage Tubing (RCK013B). Splitting your gas line would require a Wye (FIT001A) and some Check Valves (GAS003B).”

Notes from HBF: You still need a primary regulator attached to your CO2 tank.  The idea is, you set the primary to the highest pressure you will use (without exceeding specifications of any component of your system) and then use these regulators inline (one per line) to fine tune pressure and carbonation [See: Balancing Your Draft System].  As an example, you could set your primary to 25 PSI for faster force carbonation and set each line to a different pressure based on desired carbonation level.

As of this posting, this is selling for $29.99.  Shipping to most US addresses is free with a $75 order.  Check l2b for up to the minute price and availability.
