Total no-nothing noob here. I want to brew an Ale or Lager-like non alcoholic, non-carbonated malted barley beverage. Anyone have a link to share, a book to recommend, etc., that just spells it all out in really plain layman's language?

Cheers to y'all!

You could basically just make beer, but never add yeast. It would come out really sweet, but maybe adding extra hops to balance it out would fix it?

Maybe brew like usual, let it ferment out, and then boil for a while to get rid of the alcohol?

It sounds like you want to make barley water.

I've read on some forums that people have frozen the beer (not solid, but to the point of slush) post fermentation and then poured off the alcohol. The theory being that the beer would freeze before the alcohol would. Then they force carb in a keg.

Doesn't seem like it would affect the taste like re-boiling the beer would. But it doesn't sound very effective either. I dunno.

Personnally...N/A beer is kind of like a dead puppy. Shocking, sad and makes me want to cry....
