I've seen guys their doing a custom recipe. Here's a couple of recipes that
should be doable with a little advanced planning, like converting to a 10
gallon batch and making sure sufficient ingredients are on hand:
(5 gallons/19 L, extract)
OG = 1.047 FG = 1.011
IBU = 22 SRM = 8 ABV = 4.7%
Ingredients6 lb. 11 oz. (3.0 kg) BriesSweet White Sorghum Syrup 45 DE High
0.50 lbs. (0.23 kg) honey
6 AAU Tettnang hops (60 mins)
(1.5 oz./43 g of 4% alpha acids)
Danstar Nottingham dried ale yeast
0.75 cups corn sugar (for priming)
Step by Step
Heat 2.5 gallons (9.5 L) of water to a boil, then stir in sorghum syrup.
Return wort to a boil, then add hops and boil for 60 minutes. At the end of
the boil, stir in honey with a sanitized spoon, then cool wort until sides
of brewpot are cool to the touch. Transfer wort to a sanitized fermenter and
top up with water to 5 gallons (19 L). Aerate wort and pitch yeast. Ferment
at 68 °F (20 °C). Bottle with corn sugar.
Overlook Amber Ale
(Redrum Sorghum Beer)
(5 gallons/19 L, partial mash)
OG = 1.055 FG = 1.014
IBU = 33 SRM = 10+ ABV = 5.3%
Ingredients5.0 lbs. (2.3 kg) white sorghum malt (base malt)
1.0 lbs. (0.45 kg) white sorghum malt (kilned/toasted malt)
4.0 lbs. (1.8 kg) BriesSweet White Sorghum Syrup 45 DE High Maltose

2.5 AAU Cascade hops (30 mins)
(0.50 oz./14 g of 5% alpha acids)
0.50 oz. (14 g) Amarillo hops (0 mins)
Fermentis Safale S-04 dried ale yeast
0.75 cups corn sugar (for priming)
Step By Step
Malt 6.0 lbs. (2.7 kg) of white sorghum. Toast 1.0 lb. (0.45 kg) of this
malt. Perform a triple decoction mash, then heat mash to 180 °F (82 °C) and
stir in amylase enzymes. Collect wort, add syrup and boil wort for 60
minutes. Ferment at 70 °F (21 °C).

Do you think Incredibrew makes a gluten free beer? And for fun the Cardozas
might make the bottling.

> The rather resilient Mr. Tedy Bruschi is poised for his 14th Season as a
Patriot and we need to celebrate in our typical fashion with the crafting of
a Bruschi Brew in his honor. We'll never know the final year of his
accomplishment laden career but we do know there are more memorable moments
in the plans for this coming season and it is right and worthy to continue
the tradition in grandiose fashion.
> I've reserved two kettles at Incredibrew already and welcome anyone who
wishes to join in the creation to do similarly before they fill up. This
particular date will fill quickly as it is their 14th anniversary and all
kettles are buy one and get one at half price. Coordination is always a
challenge and I'll do my best though your best method of ensuring you have
some of what you wish to share is to reserve a kettle or two and offer up
shares as I'm doing. If you reply to me off list:

> I'll get you on a private list and we can work out the details.
> Date: Saturday, August 22
> Time: 4:30 p.m.
> Location: Incredibrew, Nashua, NH
> Bottling Date will be:
> Saturday, September 5 at a time to be determined by the bottling crew.
> Let's Hope Tedy and the Team put together an impressive Season of Full
Tilt Full time Performances leading us to the Prize at the end of the Season
and many glorious highlights along the way.
