Sierra Nevada Inspired Pale Ale - Drinking

The SNPA GF variant was good.  It had a nice level of hoppiness, not too bitter and quite a well balanced beer.  I'll be rebrewing this in the near future.  Might become a regular summer beer.  This also rated well with one of my regular beer testers.

If you give it a try be sure to let me know what you think.

Please excuse my crappy photo.  It was a little clearer than the photo portrays.

Sugar Trials 2 Update

So I've tested the SNPA clone bottles carbonated with the Demerara Sugar.  I'd say this doesn't help the taste much and as more demerara sugar goes in, the head retention gets worse.  So back to the drawing board.

Might need to try some other carbonation sugars.

All Things Brewing - Update

The Sierra Nevada Pale Ale GF clone is going well.  Had a taste of a bottle to see how it's going and it tastes great.  Should be ready in another two to three weeks.  I'll take a bottle into the homebrew meeting for some feed back.

The Little Creatures Bright Ale GF clone is still in the fermenter for another week.  Taste tests for this are really good, wife says it tastes like normal beer, moreso than others I've made.  I'll be using this base for a Bright Ale No-Wheat Wheat beer.

Today I finished off a gluten free ginger beer brew.  This is my first trial batch, so if the results are good I'll be sure to share the recipe.  The aim is to have something light to drink during summer.  Also ginger is quite good for Celiacs.
