The USDA has made beer out of cheatgrass using a decoction mash, and apparently came up with something drinkable along the lines of an amber ale. They estimate profits of $200,000 per hectare. There is even a brewing with cheatgrass forum on HomeBrewTalk.com.
I wonder if a brewer making cheatgrass beer would be considered an adjunct brewer, and therefore not a craft brewer?
