Homemade English Ale Mustard With Garlic

READY IN: 336hrs 10mins
Recipe by French Tart

A delicious and traditional English style artisanal mustard made with good English ale and garlic; the type of mustard that is so expensive to buy in the supermarkets. Home-made mustard is easy to make and very satisfying, as you can add special ingredients to suit your taste. This mustard is wonderful served with all manner of pies, pasties and savoury pastries, as well as cold meats, steaks, roasts and sausages. It is a quick maturing mustard, and is ready to eat in two weeks. Makes an ideal gift, especially for men and BBQ fanatics!

Looks good, but I need a recipe without flour due to gluten free family members. From what I've read, mustard will thicken up on it's own anyway, so maybe I'll try it and just leave out the flour.
