Fermentables Meeting Recap

Thanks to everyone who was able to make it to our March meeting. The topic of discussion was Gluten Free Fermentables and we drank the club brew from our donated Fantastic Floyd's IPA all grain recipe kit.

We had good insight from our pool of local pro GF brewers on the topic

  •  James Neumeister covered what Ground Breaker is doing with lentils and chestnuts to mitigate the dreaded Sorghum twang while adding color, body and complexity.
  • Dan McIntosh-Tolle discussed the magic he is working with his beet sugar-based beers at Moonshrimp Brewing
  • JP Bierly recapped some of what he learned after a 4-day residency with about malted millet, rice and buckwheat and their application in all-grain GF brewing.
(Thanks JP for recording and Peter Fold for editing)

March Meeting - GF Fermentables 3/18 2pm

Come join Zero Tolerance Gluten Free Homebrew Club Sunday afternoon 2pm - 3pm at Ground Breaker Brewing as we sample our club brew from February's meeting and discuss Gluten Free Fermentables

Fermentables are the backbone of our beer. They are also the biggest challenge for GF brewers to source. In this meeting we will discuss the options available to GF brewers and some of the creative ways GF brewers are sourcing their fermentables.
