"Great ideas, Pucelle! Using gluten-free malted flour should work, but making it is a lot of work unless you want it for other brewing or baking projects too. It should be possible I think to substitute for the malted flour using commercially available products. Gluten-free malt extract substitute (e.g. sorghum syrup) gives some rich, sweet "malty" flavour, but is usually non-diastatic, i.e. it doesn't have enough amylase to break down the rice starch into sugar. Adding some pure amylase (from a gluten-free supplier) to the rice flour should give the diastatic action needed. So I think using sorghum syrup and pure amylase together in place of malted barley flour should work adequately if imperfectly. Both products are available from specialist home brewing suppliers."
