SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hops) beers provide a great opportunity to understand the characteristics of your ingredients. In this case, we’ve included the addition of gluten-reducing enzymes, if you want a gluten-reduced beer. You’ll be able to see (and taste) how the Clarity Ferm affects Maris Otter malt.
Note that without testing a finished batch, we can make no guarantees of the amount of gluten that will remain in the beer you brew, so test before you drink if you or your friends are gluten-sensitive.
