Estrella Damm Daura

Kudos to this brewery for doing what makes sense - use barley to develop beer and simply take the gluten out. The best beer available to celiacs because it's real beer. The price is a bit outrageous but worth it.

I wouldn't touch it. I would imagine the CC that gets us from shared lines measures out at that low of a level also. It's nice to know they at least tell you about the barley though.

They remove the gluten to below 6 ppm.

Is it any good, Josh? Redbridge was not to my taste at all.

I think it's great. It's too expensive but wonderful. Not as hoppy or heavy as Redbridge. It's real beer that's why it's great. It's similar to drinking a Bud Light. Again, I wish Bud and Corona would officially release their gluten numbers because I'm quite sure they'd be well under 20 ppm too.

Heh. We have a different idea of good beer! Glad you found something you like.

I think you saved me some money trying Estrella. I find Redbridge far too light with no real body and Budweiser is not to my taste for the same reason. About the lightest beer I used to drink was Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale. :lol: I'm sure that's well above 20 ppm gluten. I need to track down that Green's gluten-free stout one of these days.

Have you tried New Grist or Bards if available? Still sweet but a fuller flavor.

I did not care for the New Grist beer. Found it too light, very insubstantial. The Redbridge is ok, but not a Nutbrown Ale, by any means! Actually, I find that I seem to be losing my taste for beer lately. Sigh. Probably a good thing, in the long run.

I would pay lots of money for a decent gluten-free stout!! I miss my Guinness...I've tried Green's beers, and for me they're waaaay too sweet. Beer isn't supposed to taste like candy...unless you're eating beer candy, I guess. Not my cup of tea. My fave gluten-free beer right now is St. Peter's Sorghum ale, really hoppy and light and not sweet. I"m with you, Skylark, I was a Sam Adams/Newcastle/Guinness/dunkelweiss drinker before the celiac diagnosis. I'm desperate enough that I may try to make my own gluten-free stout this fall!!

Me too. I was a guiness drinker before, or Tetleys, or Boddingtons.

If you havent tried Estrella Damm Daura.

I would suggest you try it.

It is not dark, but it is FLAVORFUL.

My favorites before Daura, were St Peters (not fizzy enough), and Greens Double (the dark one) (A little sweet, and strong for my taste)

My new favorite BY FAR is the DAURA.

Reminds me of..... Stella Artois, Tuborg, Carlsberg, to give yo an idea.

Try it you have nothing to lose.

Thanks for the tip on Daura.. I'm gonna try to find it.

My favorite gluten-free beers are:

1. St Peters - by far this is the best I've had - tastes like Sams to me I think.. but is 3 times as expensive as all the others

2. Bards - 2nd best - very good

3. Sprechers Shakparo - very similar to Bards. Sprechers also makes another one called Mbege but it's only avail a couple times per year so I haven't got to taste it yet

4. redbridge - is okay..

**I've also tried New Grist & all flavors of greens but I don't like those.

We'll if anyone thinks that you won't get sick on less than 6PPM gluten, then refer to my other post, I got sick on this beer, and I strongly urge anyone really gluten sensitive to avoid this beer Daura, it's from Spain I defy anyone to find any true labeling on this beer, and do you really trust a beer with no labeling!!!!!

What you have to lose is all the contents of your intestinal tract, be careful!!

DON'T DRINK IT.

I did, tonight, and was vomiting 30 minutes later with severe stomach pain (my usual first day reaction to being glutened; the week of muscle pain, migraines and neurological shakiness will start tomorrow). I was glutened by it.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
