Yield: 5 gallons


Showcase recipe on Grouse Malt House.


Tasting Notes: Fairly sweet with strong notes of chocolate, toffee, and some caramel. Finishes slightly dry and balances well with the level of hop bitterness. Medium-strong lingering foam.

This style can support American or English Hops paired with American or English Yeast depending on the brewer’s preference. In this example we used a quintessential English hop but an American equivalent such as Fuggle would also work well.

The resulting beer should have a substantial malty character that is dark but not roasted or burnt in character. Spreading your IBU contributions evenly throughout helps lend a nice balance without being too hoppy on the flavor or aroma. Fermentation temperatures should be kept below 70F to prevent the development of esters and allow for a clean finish.

We hope this helps brewers out there develop their own recipes, and we look forward to hearing from you about your thoughts on this recipe and what tip helped you the most to work with gluten-free grains.
