Default SWMBO poses this question. Help please!

Ok, so my wife is a huge beer lover! She tends to like stouts the most. We recently found out that she is pregnant and she is already missing the delicious nectar of the gods. Is there a way for me to brew alcohol free beer that tastes good? Thanks in advance for all the help.

What about brewing a wort to an FG instead of an OG and hopping like normal, then straight into keg sans pitching yeast and keep it cold on tap?

Forget it, the trouble not worth it, my wife is a porter lover, after reading through the trouble/hassle of trying, just brew bigger beers to age and lager for after the Big Day.

Brewing a stout wort to FG would taste like 5 parts water to one part stout...ech haha

Some of the commercially available n/a beers are about as good as your gonna get...without going to extremes...

Not sure what the "medical advice" is these days, is it zero? Can't imagine one 3% stout a day is a detrimental in the second or third trimester. I think the "whiskey moms" spoiled it for everyone with the fetal alcohol syndrome. Of course a bottle of Jack a day and marginal nutrition is horrible....but really?

That's what milk stout is for.
