Ever since day one, our beer has been crafted using a special process that reduces the gluten content.
The CFIA wording: "This product is fermented from grains containing gluten and crafted to remove gluten. The gluten content of this product cannot be verified, and this product may contain gluten".
How we do it...well there is no mystery behind the velvet curtain. We use Clarity Ferm TM from White Labs.
What's that, you say?
Clarity Ferm is a highly specific endoprotease that prevents chill haze in beer by hydrolyzing haze-active polypeptides where the hydrogen bonding that causes chill haze occurs. For use at the beginning of fermentation; made with DSM Brewers Clarex®. As a side effect, Clarity-Ferm has been also found to reduce gluten in beer made with barley.
All of them!
Reduced chill haze is always awesome, because who doesn't want a nice crystal clear beer?
Why not make beer that can be enjoyed by just about anybody?
