Freeze fermentation? The process they're describing is freeze distilling. Fermantation has nothing to do with separating alcohol from water.

EZ Writer: If you like good beer, don't judge them all off of one bad experience. If I had done that, I would have quit after my first beer (Stroh's). Stroh's literally translates to "piss straight from the cock". I'm pretty sure anyway... But I have no evidence to back that up.

I'm not discounting all barleywine ever. I'm just saying that my first experience was unpleasant. I should try another one though.

As for the translation, I have a Ph.D in Latin and you are indeed correct.

jshine: calm like a bomb: Freeze fermenting? Bullshiat. It isn't beer.

Yea, they just substituted distillation for an alternate process that achieves the same thing.

This is to beer what cognac is to Champagne. Or brandy to wine....

HST's Dead Carcass: I bought a friend a bottle of Tactical Nuclear Penguin by the same company. It was $60 for a 20 oz bottle. He and some friends cracked it open for hsi birthday, they said it tasted farking nasty!

They are probably shiatheads that got it cold and then drank a swig. Probably don't even know how they are supposed to drink that and then blamed the beer.

I have had very strong beers and you drink them more like you should drink good hard liquor.

When it's distilled and aged in oak barrels and doesn't have hops in it.

Radak: Freeze fermentation? The process they're describing is freeze distilling. Fermantation has nothing to do with separating alcohol from water.

So it's basically the recipe for Bud Ice, Molson XXX Ice, Labatt's Maximum Ice, and taking it a step further. Too far would be my guess. I could just add some everclear to my Victoria.

I could be wrong, but I think that the process described in TFA is freeze distillation not freeze fermenting.

I used to be in to craft beer. But now, things have gotten so "extreme" it's absolutely absurd, so I've stopped supporting craft breweries.

- If I want a good beer, I'll make it myself
- If I buy beer, from now on it's PBR or Old Milwaukee (or the cheapest macro brew then have on tap)

/way to ruin it for everyone, jerks!
