Brew for this weekend, aim is for low bitterness and gluten free.
Has to be low bitterness for me, throat damaged following radiotherapy, gluten 'free' for wife who is gluten intolerant. So hops have to be watched closely for me and no wheat for OH so Dextrin for head retention. Only been brewing GF for a few months and this is a variation of the last few brews which are getting better each time.
