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!!!

Hmm you need to start a new topic you just posted on a thread from 2016. TO answer your question yes, you need to be eating gluten at least 2 weeks prior to a scope. https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/ As to why...most doctors are frankly ...

I know one member will come back here soon and tell you it is possible with hashi etc. I know with my Celiac, UC, and some other issues I have gotten pretty damn good over the past 4-5years.

...yeah the stuff I suggested is like 325mg a full dose, why I said to get the powder you put in your drink. This way you can dose to what you need and why I said to start off with 1/4 tsp instead of the full on dose of 2tsp. https://www.amazon.com/s/s/ref=sr_nr_p_89_0?fst=as%3Aoff&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck...

One thing I definitely miss being gluten-free are spring rolls. Rarely can I find a good gluten-free spring roll. I was definitely feeling lucky when I recently tried Original Gluten-Free Spring Rolls by Lucky Foods. The rolls are super easy to prepare—mine were ready in around 10 minutes at 3...
