Castle Malting: Beer recipe Blond Buckwheat Beer
Blond Buckwheat Beer Beer recipe
Alcohol: 6 %
Blond Beer with a delicate aroma, perfect for people with Celiac disease or who are just sensitive to the gluten contained in barley and wheat.
This is a great, well-balanced gluten-free beer with delicate aromas.
The diastatic power of Château Buckwheat Malt is too low to use it at 100% rate of the malt mix. Therefore, it is advisable to include Pilsen malt into the mash. In the European Union a "gluten free" beer is considered a beer with less than 20 ppm of gluten.
