Add a little sugar and yeast to it and let it ferment in a cheesecloth covered crock until the crown falls. Put in a refrigerator to settle and bottle.

would be easier,, and cheaper,, to just make it from scratch.

Probably taste better, too.

From scratch may not be an option if he's in an Islamic country. When I was in Saudi Arabia working on the economy, beer makins were not all that available. In those days (77-86) Blue Ribbion Malt was the tickit, but often we were stuck with near beer of some discription. After much experimentation, adding straight 180 proof moonshine was the simplest fix, tasted just as bad, but it seemed like beer at the time. Burp!

Ad a shot of 120 proof "Everclear"

OK Dave...what does THIS have to do with homesteading??? ALthough a lot of people are interested in this, do you plan on deleting THIS one too????

No way, I love beer. Especially home made.

Not to be flip, but most mouthwashes sold in the U.S. are about 20% alcohol.

Ever think of just making your own to begin with? It is harder than wine, but not all that bad, and there are lots of websites, books and even some stores to help you out!
I am not sure just what to do to the non-a beer... Seems that you would simply continue the fermentation process. Even soda is made through fermentation and has a slight alcohol content... Yes... ALL sodas from Pepsi and Coke to root beer and sarsparilla. Don't think that adding yeast would help, but if you come across a good recipe for beer in general it would help you out.

Making your own beer is relatively easy, but it takes some room. Right now we have a five-gallon carboy chuffing away on a kitchen counter...not usually a problem except it's getting to be the time of year to put up vegetables and I need the counter space. We also have a couple of shelves in our bathroom full of bottled beer, plus empty bottle storage in a bedroom, etc. Not just like buying a six-pack at the grocers for sure, but then, neither does it taste like it!
Someday I hope to have a summer canning kitchen/brewery! And where we can make our wine too! But our cider press...(from Dave's design from last year) stays outside...

just add sugar(the more sugar the more alchahol content) and yeast(about one tablespoon).
