ALL TASTE. NO GLUTEN.
You’d be forgiven for thinking this was a classic hop-forward American pale ale. And you’d be right, with one exception - gluten. We locked all the flavour in and locked the gluten out. Citrus and tropical fruit flavours meld with a light caramel malt base,giving way to a riot of resinous bitterness.
Brewed with 100% malted barley and American hops, Vagabond is missing only one thing - gluten.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Cara, Crystal, Extra Pale
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!

Please note: Gluten is removed post-fermentation.
