Procedure:

Use roasted roots of burdock and dandelion. Fry the licorice root in honey if you like to increase its sweetness. The GF oats should be toasted in the oven to a deep golden-brown 3 weeks prior to brewing, and then left to waft away the off flavors in a paper bag until brew day. Then steep the oats at mashing temperature in just enough water to cover for 1 hr prior to boil, strain out and then sparge into kettle.

Bring wort to boil, and primary fermentable sugars, return to boil and achieve hot break.

Add hops and other ingredients according to schedule.

Chill wort until appropriate temperature to pitch yeast.
