Beer Updates

Last weekend, Dan started brewing his third beer. This one is going to be a pumpkin one, too, but sorghum-based and it will be gluten-free.

Roasting the Pumpkin

He's not all that huge on the gluten-free beers that are commercially available, but then, he's not big on the "typical" commercially available beers either and I'm pretty sure that's what the gluten-free ones are trying to recreate. So hopefully, his version of a gluten-free will be more in line with his fancier commercial beer tastes.

Adding the Pumpkin

He does love the pumpkin beers, though so it's really no surprise that he's making a second one. His first one turned out very nice though I think he wants a little more pie flavor, which this one should have.


Of course, even if this one goes the way of other unimpressive gluten-free beers, he'll have himself the pretty fun challenge of making a good gluten-free beer that he (and my mom) like.

In the Fridge

It's always nice to have goals.


  1. Yea! Yea! (did I say OH YEA?) And,hey - be careful how you talk about GF beers. You'd be surprised how good they can taste when that's the only kind you can have! But I must say I'm very much looking forward to this one. What a wonderful son-in-law! Pretty talented also.

  2. OH sweet and lovely pumpkin! How I wish I was in your home! :D

  3. Don't worry, Dan's got some of his first round of pumpkin set aside to bring up there. Not sure if this one will be ready by then. (Maybe bottle conditioning?)

  4. It will in bottles and ready to travel by then, maybe even ready to drink. Going to be a stretch to get the wheat one done in time.
