If you are eating Gluten Free due to Celiac Disease or sensitivity to wheat flour, you can still delight in the joys of fresh baked beer bread. New Grist is beer crafted with sorghum and rice, and has a fresh aroma, touched with honey, and merges beautifully in breads.
A combination of gluten free flour is used in this recipe, to give texture and interest to the grain profile. Adding xanthum gum is a baker’s trick that captures air and retains the structure of gluten free breads.
