(Foodbeast)   Introducing: Air. A carbonated water beverage with 4% alcohol by volume. Virtually odorless, colorless, and tasteless, it may at first seem like Coors Light, but should you consume enough, this stuff will actually get you drunk   (foodbeast.com) divider line 108

MrHappyRotter: This stuff sounds a little dangerous, like it could get your BAC up past legal limits without you really being aware of it, so if you're going to be consuming something this dangerous, you may as well go smoke marijuana, meth or do cocaine.


While I don't agree with the people talking like it could never get you drunk, you would kind of have to be consciously going for alcohol poisoning to get it off of this beverage..

In this thread - people claiming something about the strength of standard beer won't get them drunk.

You're like that German guy I met in Northern Queensland a couple of years back.

"Aussie beer doesn't get me drunk, it's weak piss"
"Oh really? Shall we test that?"

Yeah, he ended the night vomiting in a gutter.

Sweet drunken Jesus that stuff is expensive. I did the math and it's alcohol per dollar (APD) is equivalent to a 40% ABV bottle of booze at $37.

4 x 12 oz. (355 ml) cans x 4% ABV @ $7
=
1 x 750ml bottle x 40% @ $37

/Why yes, I do have a spreadsheet for this stuff

lilplatinum: imtheonlylp: lilplatinum: imtheonlylp: Ever been to your local gas station/fast food joint and have the fountain drink machine run out while getting something clear such as Sprite? Ever tasted it? WTF would want to willingly drink something like that? My first reaction is to find somewhere to spit it - quickly.

Its water with bubbles FFS...

I call BS. I'll drink water all day long. Carbonated water? If it were 100ºF out, I'd rather drink molten lava.

Thats fairly retarded.

Tasteless substance = fine.

Tasteless substance and carbonation = worse than molten lava

But apparently Tastless substance and carbonation and a farkton of corn syrup = just great


It's called carbonic acid because, hey, it's an acid. A small number of people like stark acidic flavors (I heard of a guy who brewed lemon wine, as bitter as it sounds), most don't and need them masked with sweetener. Note that if you've had club soda/soda water, you're talking about a completely different drink, because that includes salts to neutralize some of the acidity (usually baking soda). Seltzer water is what comes out of the fountain when syrup runs out, and it's not nearly as drinkable, like a fizzy fresh lemon juice without even the hint of sweetness lemon has.

The human body is funny in how sweet and salty can immediately coat the tongue and cover up lots of unpalatable flavors, but biology isn't exactly rational.

insertsnarkyusername: Same here. A while back my local corner store just gave me an 18 pack of MGD 64 because they just couldn't sell the stuff. Sounded great until I got 15 beers in without a buzz. I guess in order to make them low calorie they just took out the alcohol.


Pretty close, the only way to cost-effectively make something like that is to cut it with half water and add a bit of flavoring. You could do the same thing at home for a lot less. Doing a double fermentation on half the starch is possible, but much more time-consuming.
