More Brewing Classes Teaching the Art of Gluten-Free Beers

As gluten-free beers proliferate, more brewing classes are teaching students to brew them.

Celiac.com 12/23/2016 - As gluten-free beers gain in popularity, it's not unusual that more beer schools are offering lessons in the art of gluten-free brewing.

From just a few products ten or so years ago, there are now dozens and dozens of commercially available gluten-free beers. Taking note of the trend, more beer schools are beginning to tailor new classes on the art of crafting fine gluten-free beers.

This summer, for example, students at a beer school run by Edmund's Oast pressed into three new classes, including one aimed at drinkers with celiac disease and gluten-intolerance. Taught in summer 2016, Oast's class, "Gluten-be-Gone!" covers gluten-free beers and other brewed options for celiac sufferers.

In addition to making gluten-free beers from ingredients rice, sorghum, and honey, brewers have experimented with various enzyme treatments, and other processes, to remove gluten from beer.

"It's cool to offer up a beer school class that appeals to folks that can't really attend any of the other ones," Charleston Beer Exchange manager Brandon Plyler says. The class costs $45.

If you are interested in learning to brew gluten-free beer, keep your eyes open for local classes, and be sure to share your information in our comments section.

Jefferson, for the sake of the less-informed reader, when speaking of gluten-free beers, you should mention the distinction between naturally gluten-free and gluten-reduced beers. I believe you are aware the gluten-reduced beers have caused reactions in many Celiacs. Beer drinkers be aware: gluten-reduced beer may make you sick.

I am glad GF beer making classes are being offered - this is really a golden opportunity to brew beer exactly to your taste! The only problem is to find all the containers!!!

There are plenty of people that have gone gluten free without the official diagnosis because a gluten challenge would make them too sick. I think you are the only one that will know if it's right for you. There are some benefits to getting diagnosed as either celiac or NCGS. 1. If you are...

Oh, I would hate to have you test negative because your gluten challenge was not long enough. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ https://www.beyondceliac.org/celiac-disease/Testing-and-Diagnosis/The-Gluten-Challenge/1510/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/p...

thank you guys. I'm hoping the Gi will call back tomorrow. I'm getting the kitchen totally gluten free, except for a few things my sister who is a bit disabled is going to have. But no bread, flour, pasta and most other things will not have gluten. And my daughter doesn't go to school, she d...

Unprocessed food is great, but a life without chocolate no way! Am sure you will find a suitable brand. I don't eat Lindt, think they may use barley, others may know more. The Moser Roth are Aldi own brand. Looks like Aldi aren't in CR so not an alternative for you sorry. Maybe chec...

Ok guys, I'm not an expert. Maybe it was really just cc as Matt said. Or my body is just too sensitive now and this thing is too artificial/chemical. I feel that real unprocessed food is better for me now. It won't be a problem to find another brand. The Moser Roth doesn't sound familiar t...
