gluten-free Beers Which Taste Most Like Coors Light Or Michelob Light?
0

22 posts in this topic

The only thing I can find locally is Moosehead "beer" which is actually hard cider with carbonation?

The liquor store told me to call them with the kind I want & they will see if they can get it for us. So for you beer lovers which one in your opinion comes closest to tasting like Coors light or Michelob light?

New Planet Tread Lightly.

I've tried that one and Redbridge. I prefer the New Planet a bit but it's more expensive (4pk - $8).

The ciders are growing on me... granny smith Woodchuck - yum!

OOPS! I think I got confused & it is Woodchuck. LOL! Woodchuck..... Moosehead.... can you see how my thought process was running?laugh.giflaugh.gif

Thanks Christine! The hubs likes beer --- I'm not a big fan. We both know he will not like the cider stuff. IH said her hubs likes the New Planet too.

The Redbridge was not a big hit in our house.

He said Yuck, this tastes like Bud light. Meaning he does not like it. :lol:

He brews his own, but

He likes:

Bards

Green's

New Planet

New Grist

Woodchuck (aka Moosehead? :lol: good one, squirmy)

Strongbow

I have to say it: Back in the day, I didn't consider Coors Light to taste anything at all like REAL beer.

It is indeed possible! My cuz and his wife did it too.

We had to replace some of the brewing equipment, obviously (like copper wiring) but yup, we did it! Pretty good too.

PM me if you want me to have him tell you what he did.

Why am I not surprised that the scientist brews his own?biggrin.gif

Thanks for the link. I will check them out tomorrow. Today is shot. I have no mind for decisions this evening. Already made too many of those today.

I doubt I'm the only one interested. B) Maybe you could share it for the board?

Coors Light is panther piss. Anyone who thinks it is beer is obviously suffering from neurological issues--brain fog--caused by gluten.

:lol: I'll second that. See-through beer is for wussies. I really miss a good pint of Guinness. Not the wretched bottled stuff either. A properly poured nitrogen tap pint from a fresh keg. The Green's Endeavor dubbel is the closest I can come now.

Amen to that, sister!

I think you will understand how much I am loved when I tell you hubs gave up his beloved Guinness voluntarily when he went gluten-free with me. My big Irish guy--his life- blood!! :)

There is nothing like having one in a pub in Ireland. Even I drank a half pint with my lunch every day.

It took F O R E V E R for that head to die down. :lol: It is a 20 minute delay from asking for it and getting it to your lips. You chat ....and wait.

When you are halfway down the pint, you order the next one because it will take a while for it to arrive. :lol:

No one gets impatient waiting for it, because they know it will be the best sip they have ever had. Hubs calls it "mother's milk".

I'll ask him to put his notes for the ale together and we'll post it.

I am surprised no one has done it on here already--some directions are on the internet, I think?

Your hubs brews gluten-free beer? How??? I used to love making homebrew but I didn't know it was possible gluten-free.

Here you are! Since you have already done this, I provided his notes too. :)

I made the following changes to my existing beer brewing equipment:

Replaced fermentation lock, bottling tip, caps, racking cane, tubing, bottle and carboy brushes and spoon for stirring wort.

Replaced copper cooling coil and tubing piece with drilled holes ( 20 holes 1/16 inch) for aeration. Replaced activated charcoal and hydrogen peroxide for aeration set up.

Cleaned SS 10 gallon pot several times. Used (in separate cleanings) Bartenders Friend and B-Bright with plastic scouring pads. Carboys washed repeatedly with B-Brite and clean water rinse and sanitized with Clorox in water solution (2 Tbls. per gallon of water and soak for approx 15 minutes. )

Thanks! Sorghum syrup makes sense! I wonder if my local homebrew supply has it. I wonder if there is enough tyramine in homebrew to make me sick? :huh: Drat. I'm not used to worrying about stuff other than gluten.

Yes, I hardly ever drink beer so I didn't think of it but it is on all the tyramine lists. Red wine is really hard on me and fermented things like yogurt, sauerkraut, and miso are a no-go.

Sorry, hon. Save the recipe. Maybe in time, you can tolerate it once more? I have my fingers crossed for us all.

I can't do red wine anymore and a nice Amarone was my favorite :(

Sometimes, this does suck.

    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura but no headache lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I am sorry that you are sick!  😔.  I think you need to find out which celiac antibody tests were given.  Often just the TTG Is ordered for initial screening.  This test catches most, but not all celiacs (like me!)   You also need to see if they gave you the igA deficency test too.   Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)   -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You can go gluten free, but knowing if you have an autoimmune disease is helpful.  celiac disease is genetic (you have the genes, but so does 30% of the population and that's why the gene test is used only to exclude celiac disease and not diagnose it).   All family members should be tested even if they are symptom free.   I hope you figure it out and I am sorry that you had such a horrible experience.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
