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.

He brews his own, but

He likes:

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.

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.

    • Hi Kasia2016, Yes, celiac disease symptoms can vary widely.  Some people have no symptoms, we call that silent celiac.  Other have difficulty walking (gluten ataxia), skin rashes (dermatitis herpetiformis), and thyroid disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis).  The list goes on and on.  GI symptoms can vary widely too, from mild symptoms at times to severe symptoms.
    • Hi egs1707, Welcome to the forum! Irene is right, you should not be gluten-free until all testing is completed.  The celiac disease tests are checking for immune system reactions and damage, and when you go gluten-free that starts to decline.  So the tests may not show the true immune reaction that is going on or the normal damage.  They may not show any damage in fact and you could get a false negative diagnosis.  You body starts healing and out the window go the test results.  Your doctor gets an "F" grade if they told you to go gluten-free now. But you aren't alone in having a doctor who doesn't understand the celiac disease testing process.  Many of them are woefully ignorant of proper testing for celiac disease.  That why the current estimate is somewhere in the range of 85% of celiacs in the USA are undiagnosed.  It doesn't help when doctors screw up the testing themselves.  Or refuse to test people.  Which is also far too common. I was vegetarian for 5 years.  I am not anymore and don't recommend it.  It is hard enough living gluten-free and finding safe food to eat and adequate nutrition for healing a damaged body.  I used to eat a lot of soy products when I Was vegetarian, but now soy makes me physically sick.  We can sometimes develop reactions to foods we eat a lot of while our guts are inflamed IMHO.  Soy is not a healthy food anyway from my reading. I can't do dairy now but may people who start out lactose intolerant end up being able to eat dairy after they have recovered. The best advice I can give is to avoid as much processed food as you can, and eat mostly whole foods you cook yourself at home.  When you do cook, cook big, and freeze the leftovers.  That way you can quickly take a small portion of food out of the freezer and reheat it.  Being celiac it is more important to learn how to cook.  Unless you are wealthy all those gluten-free processed foods add up quick.  Plus gluten-free processed foods often are lacking in fiber and vitamins. You'll want to watch out for vitamin deficiencies also.  Since celiac disease damages the villi in the small intestine, the vitamins and minerals etc are not digested and absorbed well.  So celiacs can be low on vitamin D, calcium,  and one other one I forget.  Vitamin B-12 may be low also ( it is important for nerve health).  Then there are some vitamins that vegetarians tend to have problems getting enough of also to consider. Adjusting to living with celiac disease means adjusting to a new diet and some lifestyle changes.  There's lots of us that make that change every year though, it's not impossible.  You will most likely end up eating better, more nutritious food than many of your peers.  And you will avoid a pletora of additional health concerns that can come along with untreated celiac disease. Learning to cook can be an adventure and you may enjoy it once you start.  you may find your taste in foods changes once you have been gluten-free for a while too. Recovery from celiac disease can take some months.  The immune system is very serious about protecting us and doesn't give up quickly.  Also it always remembers so it will react to even small amounts of gluten.  I live with gluten eaters at home and I do fine.  I just am careful about rinsing dishes off and so forth before using them. There is a Newbie 101 thread at the top of the coping with forum subsection.  It may provide some helpful info.  
    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
    • Pastry chain goes gluten-free, using mangoes ... But gluten is also believed to cause celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and wheat allergy, ... View the full article
    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
