Our low gluten American Pale Ale kit includes a pound of crystal 40L to give the beer more body and beer-like flavors from grain. Features our new Ahtanum hops that have an amazing aroma. We have to call these kits low gluten since they have grain in them, although the traces of the gliadin protein are undetectable based on our lab results.

Low Gluten 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. As a homebrewer your goal is to find a suitable fermentable that can emulate the maltiness in beer.

Our Low Gluten recipes use Sorghum extract, rice extract, and candi syrup for color. Hops cut through the maltiness from sorghum easily. Hop additions in low gluten 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.)

OK for GF I guess (definitely drinkable)
Made this for a friend with a slight wheat allergy. Regular beer, bread, and such makes her break out in a rash. Can't really compare it. as I've never done a GF before. However, this didn't really meet my expectations. The numbers came in significantly below the estimated OG/FG, finishing at about 4%. I'm an AG brewer with many batches, both extract and AG, under my belt. I know my efficiency is there. I dry hopped with an additional 2 oz of Citra. While the aroma was great, the flavor was more like a tropical pilsner, as opposed to a pale ale. Definitely drinkable though. Will be a good refreshing beer on those hot summer days.

While the small amount of Crystal shouldn't affect my friend with a slight wheat allergy, I have heard from several friends with celiac's that any gluten product will cause them to react. I've also heard the same from several home brewers on the Homebrewtalk.com forums. So, care should be taken if you are brewing for a true gluten intolerant beer drinker.
