This light ale recipe is the most basic gluten free kit we offer. An ideal first low gluten brew so you can get an idea of what malt flavors sorghum contributes to beer. This recipe is light and easy drinking.

Gluten free beers are a different world when it comes to finding a suitable replacement for the base extract. Celiacs are alleric to the hordein protein found in the base malts such as 2-Row and Pilsner malt. They are also allergic to the gliadin protein found in wheat which is the biggest offender of the two proteins.As a homebrewer your goal is to find a suitable fermentable that can emulate the maltiness in beer.

Our Gluten recipes use Sorghum extract for the base fermentables.Hops aggressively cut through the maltiness from sorghum easily.Hop additions in gluten free beers tend to be 40-50% less than normal.

All our gluten kits include dry yeast due to the small traces of the gliadin protein found in liquid yeast.(Although lab research has found the yeast metabolize the gliadin protein after fermentation and significantly reduce the ppm present.)
