Default 'Simply' gluten free pale ale

I started this at the weekend as a re-introduction to beer making after being diagnosed as coeliac a couple of years ago. I used to make the 'Simply' pale ale a lot so it will be interesting to see how this compares. I always used to use a beer enhancer but this time I am only allowed brewing sugar.

I have no room at home so its being done at my girlfriend's house. I only see her at the weekends so I cant really keep a close eye on it, but she has confirmed that it is bubbling furiously.

That is a very good point, but yes it is. I emailed Ritchies and they confirmed that is completely gluten free. They did say that it is packed in the same plant as malt products but using different machinery so contamination is likely to be minimal.

Two weeks on and its not quite finished so I am going to give it another week and aim to bottle it next Saturday. Had a sneaky taste - promising.

I now have 38 of these beauties sitting in the warm, doing their thing. Batch primed with 20 heaped teaspoons of caster sugar and bottled on Saturday.

Hi,
Also intrigued to find out how this comes along. I currently have one in FV. Just out of interest did you find it at all reluctant to get going? I thought maybe i had ruined the attached yeast by dunking it in very hot water still attached to the the pouch (Doh!), so added some back up- but still no foam just a bit of fizz if agitated.
thanks
Steve

Well, three weeks in the bottle and I couldn't wait any longer! Had a couple last night and they were most enjoyable. Pretty much what you would expect from a basic kit like this but when you have only drunk maybe eight beers in the last two years, it was bloody fantastic.



I wanted to do this kit exactly as per the instructions as a bench mark for improvements. I shall be starting another one at the weekend, this time with 500g brown sugar, 400g brewing sugar and made up to 18 litres. I'll add some hop pellets after one week and see what happens.

I emailed Richies who make the kits to see if they are planning to expand the range of gluten free beers and was told to expect an announcement later in the year - sounds promising.

Have you tried reduced gluten beer, I have been hearing good things about it? The up side is it uses standard mashing ingredients.
