The Boozy Ingredient Exchange For Homemade Gluten-Free Bread
Although there are many gluten-free breads on the market, it can be way more satisfying to bake your own. One ingredient can make homemade gluten-free bread much easier.
A gluten-free beer contains many of the ingredients of bread (yeast, grain, and water), as well as carbonation, which makes for a light, fluffy, and airy loaf with great flavor.
Gluten serves as a leavening agent that plays a critical role in trapping gas bubbles during fermentation. Beer mimics this by emitting carbon dioxide to force the dough to rise.
The flavor of your bread will determine which beer you should choose. Generally speaking, pick a brew that has a good average of hoppiness, carbonation, and alcohol content.
