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!

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.

I was disguising it, but

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?

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.

    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)
