Beer concentrate: Light-weight beer for backpacking

http://www.today.com/food/beer-conce...ure-2D11741579

Anyone tried this yet? It sounds complicated. I think I'll just stick with whiskey.

Yes but it requires some accoutrements. Such as a carbonating bottle and chemicals to mix. But you do get an upper body workout.

Thank goodness our local beverage center sells some good craft beer in a can.
Sometimes after a long day you just want to pop a top, and not necessarily do any more work.

I was just reading about this, doesn't sound appealing but I may give it a shot. Don't know unless you try! Meanwhile I'll stick to the cherry moonshine. Stuff can take paint off anything!! So only a small amount needs to be packed.

This stuff looks equally innovative. The original product was bulky, but this stuff is more compact. Great for winter treks also--no thawing needed!

Just dry it the rest of the way and eat it… be kinda like that gravy Guinness makes, just you'll have to chew a little more.

If you pack Everclear, you can use it as fuel and a hallucinogen, and to dress arrow wounds (if you have a bullet to bite).

Can you buy everclear in NY? You cant here in ontario. I had a similar idea where you boil down your favourite brew into a syrup, and reconstitute with filtered water and everclear.

I'd carbonate via an old home brewers technique where you take a CO2 bicycle tire inflator and inject it into a 2L bottle with a tire nozzle attached to the cap. Like the original... It does involve about 5 minutes of shaking.

I know liquor is a lot easier... But I just can't acquire a taste for it.

Good for what "ales" you? Forget that IPA stuff why not drink a real beer? Stella Artois. Bring Stella with you. She will help you relax after the hike.
