GLUTEN FREE BEER

CLAYTON'S BEER

The beer you make without it being a true beer...  We found this recipe in Mike Rodgers-Wilsons' book Brewing Crafts.  Seems we get a lot of requests these days for the gluten free beer.  Most recipes we find require you to germinate various grains yourself.  This recipe looks kind of simple and already we are trying different twists.

500g Muscovado sugar (a soft moist brown type)

450g raw sugar

450g black strap molasses (or honey or treacle)

40g Golden Cluster hops (bittering)

10g Cascade hops (finishing)

1 teaspoon yeast nutrient

Safale yeast

Boil the bittering hops in 4 litres water for 40 mins.  Add the sugars and the finishing hops to liquid and let stand for 10 mins.  Strain the liquid into the fermenter.  Add the yeast nutrient and fill the barrel to 22L.  Temperature should be 22-25C and O.G should be 1025.  Pitch the yeast and ferment in the normal way.  F.G. should be 1000 and the alcohol will be about 3.9%.  I'd be inclined to boost this to a full strength beer by adding 1kg of rice malt extract.  Products in this recipe are available from Raw Natural Grocer or other health stores).

STEVE'S GF BEER

After trying the above Gluten Free beer, Steve formulated this version.  I tried it and its not bad!!!!  The resinous hops are unchallenged by the various sugars and it comes up as bitter as a "first harvest".  We both agreed that next time the addition of honey, instead of molasses would blend nicely with the citrus overtones of the Cascade hops.

500g Dark Muscovado sugar (a soft moist brown type)

500g raw sugar

500g black strap molasses (or honey or treacle)

40g Cascade hops (bittering)

10g Saaz hops (finishing)

1 teaspoon yeast nutrient

Safale yeast

Boil the bittering hops in 4 litres water for 40 mins.  Add the sugars and the finishing hops to liquid and let stand for 10 mins.  Strain the liquid into the fermenter.  Add the yeast nutrient and fill the barrel to 22L.  Temperature should be 22-25C and O.G should be 1025.  Pitch the yeast and ferment in the normal way.  F.G. should be 1000 and the alcohol will be about 3.9%.  I'd be inclined to boost this to a full strength beer by adding 1kg of rice malt extract.  Products in this recipe are available from Raw Natural Grocer or other health stores).

PILSNER

GERMAN PILSNER

(Printer friendly version)

This pils is a German version that is considered to be the origin of the pilsner style. It has a great complexity of flavour obtained from the different infusion times of the Saaz hops and the addition of the wheat malt, which also gives that characteristic tight, white head. The use of a type specific low temp lager yeast will allow the flavour to develop slowly (very) and true to style. To avoid off flavours you MUST lager this beer for at least 1 month.

3kg light malt extract

500g wheat dried malt

100g Saaz hops (total)

Split the hops into 75g, 15g & 10g lots

Saflager yeast

METHOD:

  1. Gently boil the malts in 8-10L of water, with the first quota of hops for 1 hour.

  2. Switch of the heat and add the second quota of hops, stirring in carefully, and let sit for 15 mins. Strain into a fermenter and fill with cold water.

  3. Place into a fridge and cool to 10- 15C and add the lager yeast and ferment to a final gravity of about 1010-1015, rack off the clear beer to another fermenter, add the final portion of the dry hops and allow to lager for at least 1 month before bottling.

  4. Allow to mature for at least 2 months before sampling.

LAGER

MEXICAN CERVEZA 

(Printer friendly version)

A typical South of the Border style pale and lightly flavoured summer quaffer. Definitely one to have after watching someone else mow the lawn. Also you may want to add a slice of lemon or lime to the neck of the bottle for a little extra bite.

2.5Kg light dried malt

10g Golden Cluster hop pellets @ 5 mins

15g Hersbrucker hop pellets @ 45 mins

15g Hersbrucker hop pellets @ steeping

Saflager beer yeast

  1. Add 2.5Kg of malt to 5 - 10L of water and bring to the boil 

  2. After 5 minutes of boiling add the Golden Cluster hops and continue to boil.

  3. After a further 40 minutes add the first 15g of Hersbrucker and continue to boil for a further 15 minutes.

  4. At the end of the boiling time remove from the heat and steep the last 15g of Hersbrucker hops and steep for 5 mins.

  5. Cool the liquid down to fermentation temperature as quickly possible and syphon into your fermenter.  Add the yeast.

  6. Place into a fridge and cool to 10- 15C and ferment to a final gravity of about 1005-1010, rack off the clear beer to another fermenter and allow to lager for at least 1 month @ 10-15C before bottling.

  7. Allow to mature for at least 2 months before sampling.

ALE

IRISH RED ALE -BEAMISH 

(Printer friendly version)

When we think of Irish beer stout comes to mind, but the first references to Irish stouts is in the late 17th century to the early 18th century and Irish beer is a lot older than that. Today Red Ale is rare and only a few examples of this style exist today, Beamish being the most famous.

3Kg Coopers amber malt extract

200g dark dried malt

250g dried malt additive

40g Fuggles hops (bittering)

30g Willamette hops (flavouring)

1tsp Irish moss

Wyeast1084 (Irish Ale)

Mix the two malts with your hot water in a boiler.  Bring to the boil and add the bittering hops and boil for one hour.  Add the aroma hops and Irish moss and boil for a further 15 mins.  Cool the wort  as close to 18C as possible.  Ferment as per normal.  When finished, rack and let stand for a further two weeks at least. Rack again, bulk prime with light dried malt and bottle, leaving for at least three months before sampling.

KING'S PALE ALE 2007

Its an American pale ale style, and, in Kingy's opinion, is absolutely amazing!!!!

3kg Light dried malt extract
250g crystal malt (steeped for 30min @ 67C)
10g Pride of Ringwood & 15g golden cluster @ 60min boil
10g golden cluster & 15g cascade @ 30min boil
10g cascade @ flameout

Steep the crystal for half an hour in 3-4L water, then sparge and strain and bring the volume up to 8L.

Bring this to the boil, add the hops at the required intervals

Cool wort, add the rest of the malt, and make up to 25L

Ferment @ 18-20C with US-56 yeast for 12 days.  Beersmith estimates 35IBU's.

Bottle or keg as normal.

Kingy's been drinking this lately, and the only problem he can pick with it is that each glass begs another one.

PORTER

HOGES PORTER  

(Printer friendly version)

The almost internationally renowned Hoges has out done himself this time.  The original recipe called for 250g of black malt grain but a bit of tweaking the recipe tamed the original acrid flavours, turning it into a great beer that's hop content really shows through.  A top drop that having one is nowhere near enough.

3Kg light dried malt

500g crystal malt grain (60ebc)

350g chocolate malt grain

150g black malt

50g carafa special 3

25g Kent Goldings cones

25g Goldings hop pellets

50g Fuggles hop pellets

METHOD:- Steep the crystal grain, chocolate grain and the carafa 3 in 2L of water at 68C for 1 hour, trying to keep the mix within a couple of degrees of this temp, then sparge (rinse) the grains with 3-4L of hot water.  At the same time as the other grains are resting steep the black grain in 2L of cold water (to avoid a really acrid taste).  Place the grain juices in a pot with 10L of water, the light dried malt and the Kent Goldings cones and gently boil for 1 hour.  Add the Goldings comes at the 15 min mark of the boil, 25g of the Fuggles pellets at the 45 min mark and the rest of the Fuggles at the end of the boil, when the heat has been removed.  After 5 mins strain the wort into a fermenter and cool, as quickly as possible, to fermentation temp.  Allow to ferment for 7 days, then rack to a secondary fermenter and allow to stand for a further 7 days.  Bottle and allow to mature for at least 1-2 months before sampling.
