ups and downs
Got the trial gallon of Red Diesel pseudobeer made

Bodged up a christmas tree lightbulb tester (see pic on BaceFook): found only the fuse bulbs had failed. All 3 of them... Hmmm.

Got an "unexpected error" from my sniping software, but it turns out the items went for more than I'd been prepared to pay. After all, Wilkos do demijohns for 4.50 new (when they have them in). It's not like I desparately need any right now.

Will be interested to hear how the pseudobeer turns out. A friend of mine who is a very bad coeliac has just started reacting badly to Budweiser (apparently the only mainstream beer where the gluten is broken down so far that it is non-reactive) and bemoaning a life drinking cider. It was bad enough when she could only drink Budweiser but now there's not even that option for her! So maybe she needs to get into homebrew...

There are of course several GF beers around, but at fairly high prices. Most supermarkets have some. There are some decent ciders out there too!

If anybody knows where to get sorghum syrup, that's what the commercial GF brewers use (afaik). Google isn't helping me with this.

Been thinking about malting some millet...
