How-To: Brewing Better Extract Beers

There isn't a whole lot of info out there on how to make good extract-based gluten-free beers, and let me tell you that just boiling up six pounds of sorghum extract and calling it good will NOT make a great beer.  With over 30 brews under my belt, all of which have been recipes of my own devising, I thought I'd share a bit of my experience in how to make good extract beers (since not everyone wants to fuss with enzymes, decoction mashes, self-malted grains, etc.).  It is perfectly possible to make extract-based gluten-free beers that rival and even exceed the commercially-available stuff!  Check out these tips after the jump.
