Can you have beer without gluten in it? This week on Fuhmentaboudit!, Chris Cuzme and Mary Izett are talking with Brian Kulbacki: gluten-free homebrewer. Brian recently was awarded for his sorghum American Pale Ale at Homebrew Alley VII! Hear why Brian started brewing gluten-free beers in the first place. What malt alternatives are available for gluten-free brewers? Listen in to hear Brian talk about masking sorghum flavors in gluten-free homebrews, and why there are a lack of hoppy gluten-free beers. Learn how experimenting with different dry yeasts can affect the flavor of your gluten-free homemade beer! This program has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

“The base of most gluten-free beers is sorghum syrups. There are some, but not a lot of other options out there.” [5:30]

“Pick a hop that doesn’t have a lot of flavor impact, but one that has a lot of aroma.” [14:30]
