Has anyone tried spelt bread?

I slowly introduced wheat back into my diet about 6 weeks ago, mainly things like sausages, wheat coated fish etc and not 'full on' bread as I am still wary about going that far incase I get a return of my symptoms.
One thing which was allowed on the diet was spelt flour but as it was still wheat related I decided not to eat it but have just bought a packet of white spelt flour and am considering having a go at making my own bread with it.
I have read several articals stating that people who have problems with wheat often can tolerate spelt as its gluten is different than standard wheat and sensitive people are better able to tolerate it.
Has anyone tried spelt and did it cause any problems? I am really missing bread and the gluten-free varieties just are not the same to me:(

I'm never sure how much of the wheat issue is really gluten and how much is starch (which is where you get gas from). So with those vaguer intolerances to wheat it is always harder to say if something will be OK or not.
