I see no problem with this..
 
2013-01-11 08:33:55 AM
I have a solution -- drink twice as much.

Isn't this just Ice Beer?

Or just drink wine or liquor instead.

Yeah; or for cider, you get applejack. This is a new idea that just happens to be hundreds of years old.

There's no point if you make it taste like ass. You might as well drink vodka. Give me a 6% beer that tastes good any day. If I really need to get drunk, I'll have a few more.

It's kind of funny but it seems like when people imagine 'scientists', they imagine a group of about 100 people sitting in a lecture forum in their lab coats looking at one guy who is standing in front of a chalk board going 'GENTLEMEN, WHAT SHALL WE, THE ONLY ONE HUNDRED SCIENTISTS IN THE WORLD, RESEARCH NOW?'

" . . . how to make strong beer even stronger"

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Science is hard. Not many people can do it. It's also boring. So not many sane people want to.

It also doesn't pay very well, because it's not as important as business.

For example, have most people heard of Thomas Edison? Of course, he was the successful businessman that invented electricity, the telephone, the light bulb, and the radio.

But how many know about that mad scientist Nikola Tesla that used to electrocute elephants to try to take over the world? Only failed liberal car manufacturers. I read about this guy recently. Did you know he was celebate his whole life? What a freak.

Scientists are weird, useless, and poor. Most end up shilling for the global warming establishment, and dying alone with their cats, who may or may not already be dead themselves.

And THAT'S why there's no cure for cancer.

I'd rather have weaker beers that taste good than artificially strengthening one unless it was an eisbock. A barleywine will mulekick you.

From the Dogfish institute of one bottle of beer getting me pretty drunk

I was expecting something about actually making beer stronger, not concentrating it.

There's actually a need for yeasts that consistently produce 20% alcohol brew. This would help in ethanol production in the distillation step.

This is the best news I've heard since finding out that Derek Jeter's latest plaything doesn't meet the standards of most of the Dolce & Gabbana models who spend what free time their jet settling modelling careers allow posting on Fark.

What's the difference between beer brewed to be 12%abv and beer brewed to be 6%abv with enough alcohol added to it after brewing to up it to 12%abv?

Legal stuff. If it makes the EtOH via fermentation it is legit, if you add the EtOH then it is no longer "Beer" but a malted beverage.

I thought yeast nutrient and Alcohol tolerant Yeast already got beer pretty high in ABV???

I've heard rumors of yeast strains capable of producing mid-30's ABV from natural fermentation. Whether or not it's true, or even tastes good, is unknown to me.

"but how many know about that mad scientist Nikola Tesla that used to electrocute elephants to try to take over the world? Only failed liberal car manufacturers. I read about this guy recently. Did you know he was celebate his whole life? What a freak."

Sweet Jesus, Nikola Tesla is responsible for alternating current electricity, which is what the world uses. Without him, electricity would be too expensive and difficult to maintain for the kind of use it had today in a national grid.

Give the man some respect: he's one of the most important minds to have ever existed in modern times. fark Edison.
