September Meeting - Mashing Techniques

This is the one you've been waiting for. We will be discussing the varied mashing techniques some of our all-grain brewers are using. This is the one step that really sets us apart from the Wheateaters and there is no one correct answer to the riddle "How do you make beer from grains that don't necessarily want to be beer?"

This one is going to get deep.

Zero Tolerance: Basic Brewing Radio Podcast

Earlier this month the members who represented Zero Tolerance at HomebrewCon were invited to appear with James Spencer on Basic Brewing Radio. James met the gang at HomebrewCon and he was enamoured with the beers at Social Club and later at Club Night. Upon learning that the beers were gluten-free, he asked about the process and became interested enough to invite the trio on his show.

Joe, Ed and Bob did their best to spread the good word about GF beer to the homebrewing masses and, despite some skype challenges, managed to pull it off.

Q&A Series Launch: Andrew Lavery (A Collaboration with GFHB)

Today we are launching a new series that will eventually find a recurring home on the blog. In this series, we will be seeking out influential people from the gluten-free beer community and getting to know them and the things they are doing to raise the profile of great gluten-free beer.

I plan to cast a wide net for this project. And in this first post, I recruited Brian from to reach out to an old collaborator of his: Andrew Lavery.

Andrew wrote some of the very first tutorials on gluten-free malting and mashing techniques, way back in 2006. Most people have seen these tutorials, or tutorials that heavily reference Andrew's early work. The impact of these guides is immeasurable and I thought it would be a perfect starting place for the series.

So please hop on over to Brian's blog on and see what Andrew has been up to in the years since he blessed us with those writings.

And if you have any subjects you would like to see featured in the Q&A series, please let me know at
