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.

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

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.

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.

    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there, I do not have celiac but am trying a gluten-free diet to see if it alleviates any of my symptoms. I Know that with celiac, it can take months on a gluten-free diet to really see/feel any change, but was told that if it is only a sensitivity, that you should feel results rather quickly (within days). This was per my dr (MD). Can anyone share their experience with Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and time to feeling better on a gluten-free diet? Thanks!
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I get so frustrated!  My friend's mom is 67...there has to be a reason for this.  And all she says is, they have no idea how she can be in end stage liver disease!   Anyway, I'm doing ok.  I got cc'd on vacation which stunk.  I had forgotten how terrible it feels.  Ugh!  The good news is that my vitamin D level is finally moving up...not inching.  It increased by 3 points in the last 6 months.  Previously, it was inching with increases of .5 or .6.  So I'm pleased that I'm absorbing better. Bartie's passing really shook me up.  This disease is a scary thing as so many people go undiagnosed for so long.  Then other people have disappeared from the board(nvsmom), who were huge contributors and I worry that they aren't doing well.  But I am a worrier. How are you?
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Thanks for your kind words about my brother, Icelandgirl.  So nice to hear from you again.    Yes, this is what drives me crazy the most....people with obvious and potentially life threatening symptoms like diarrhea with severe dehydration.  I had that at the point when I was diagnosed but it wasn't the doctor's who suggested a Celiac panel, it was me.  I mean, WTF is wrong with them?  People do not have severe diarrhea and dehydration from mild problems.  Celiac is no longer an unheard of condition, gluten free is everywhere. And, don't even get me started on why so many people are developing Dementia and Alzheimer's today.  My father has Dementia and is at home with round the clock care. He has the body shape, like I did, of a classic Celiac. Bloated belly and stick arms and legs. My family will not have him tested, either.  They treat me like I am a crazy loon over that one.  I do not think he will make a miraculous recovery on the gluten-free diet but it could make his remaining time more comfortable.  When I bring him food, it is always gluten free and he cannot tell the difference.  He loved the gluten-free muffins I brought him and it made me sad to think I am the only one who cares.  Honestly, life is such a trial at times and it's because of difficult people who are afraid of change. How are you doing?
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Gemini...I'm so sorry about your brother.  (((Hugs))) It's just awful...I too have relatives that I believe have celiac.  One uncle is deteriorating...and in and out of the hospital.  He hasn't been tested for celiac and no one wants to hear it.   I also have a friend whose mom has been diagnosed with early onset alzheimers and end stage kidney disease.  She's not a drinker at all.  This is after surviving breast and lung cancer and she's never smoked.  Last year she was in the hospital with severe diarrhea and dehydration.  Has she been tested?  No.  I've talked to my friend and she says she doesn't think she'd go gluten free anyway. Sigh...it makes me so sad.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I like the way you put that, Squirmy and it's very true!

      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,
