Gluten Free Brewing by Robert Keifer of Brewers Publications


Boulder, Colorado. “No barley, no wheat, no rye?” No problem! Gluten-Free Brewing: Techniques, Processes, and Ingredients to Make Tasty Beerthe latest version of Brewers publications®, explores the world of gluten-free grains and teaches readers how to make delicious gluten-free beers with a variety of ingredients. Author Robert Keifer discusses the extremely tasty gluten-free ingredients available today, where to find these ingredients, the malting process, fermentation challenges, and more.

While gluten-free foods and lifestyles have become mainstream in recent years, with around 46% of consumers abstaining from gluten, gluten-free brewing is far from a modern phenomenon. Beer styles such as chicha (Indian corn beer) and polyonymous African sorghum beer date back over 10,000 years and are still consumed by their respective communities of origin. Keifer writes that these ancient beans will usher in today’s contemporary craft beer community and industry into the next chapter of brewing.

“I think most people would be surprised to learn that there are more grains that don’t contain gluten than grains that do,” Keifer said. “It’s this wide variety of gluten-free ingredients that is being researched more than ever and can be used to brew delicious, flavorful gluten-free beers.” In Gluten Free BrewingI’m excited to show readers how fun and rewarding gluten-free brewing is, and to expand readers’ repertoire, palates, and understanding of gluten-free ingredients.
