> extracting alcohol through vacuum evaporation.

I wonder what the legal and definitional technicalities are here.

Is the alcohol extracted still considered beer in an important sense?

If so then that "beer" can be added to another batch of beer without having to go through the legal steps in adding ethanol to beer -ts just blending beer.

I've heard in the wine industry that alcohol recovered from a batch of wine that has gone bad is still considered natural wine.

N/A beers have gotten a lot better than O'Fools and the like.  Not my first choice but they fill in in a pinch where you can't drink a decent beer and don't want to drink soda or water for a couple of hours.

They actually have that in Japan. It's called Hoppy. It's a non-alcoholic beerish drink that is sold as a mixer for highballs.

I watched a documentary on the Japanese craft beer movement a couple of weeks ago. They have some interesting stuff going on over there. However, I shall not be trying the one with fish powder. And no, i dont mean using insinglass for clarification.

Malta is just wort, no? No fermentation and no hops, i think.

oh, that reminds me! malta is a lazy/cheat ingredient for fermenting kvass, if you don't want to use the traditional actual bread.

and kvass is one of the few nonalcoholic* beer-alikes I'll willingly drink. except I stopped because waaayyy too many sugars+carbs. also because if you drink a lot of it, your gut-biome shifts in very interesting ways... for days or even a week later.

*I mean, the imported stuff is never actually marked but can easily be 2% or even close to 3%. not sure how they get away with that in the US, but they totally do. also the yeasts are not only still alive but in fact quite active. so even many/most of the store-bought ones will definitely keep fermenting long after you take it home.

Ive always wondered what fermented malts would be like, thanks for popping the idea back in my head. I might try doing it this week.

"It's interesting that there's sort of these little moments where we recognize maybe it's good for your body to take a break from alcohol."

Pussyfooting around the concept that you are a drunk much?

I'd buy more if they were priced 30% less than boozy beer.
