What it means is that the final product is less dense than water (due to the alcohol).

I made 6-10 small batches like this in a "Beer Machine" which is like Mr. Beer. Anyway, you just sanitized and added cool water and yeast. I never had an infection. The beer ranged from "bleh" to passable. The best...was nowhere near the typical quality of what I brew now though.

I would have to change my Brewery Rule with this type of Kit.

Now: Rule #1: Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize!

With No Boil: Rule #1: Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize! Sanitize!
