Leaving aside the questions about the OP's veracity, it seems to me that there's a more fundamental issue: what would the yeast (any yeast) ferment? I wouldn't expect there would be much fermentable sugar in a non-alcoholic beer. I guess he could try a malt soda, if he can find that...

Shouldn't be much to ferment there => no alcohol, but safe.
Same as taking the supplement and drinking the non-alcoholic beer separately.

Hasn't it been noted that you can use Malta Goya in a starter? I'm pretty sure I read that somewhere on HBT.

Anyway, still would require active yeast. Of course, if you let the bottle sit open long enough, something is bound to show up!

I will try the beer and let you know.
Thanks all

If it doesn't work you could always go into your mom's pantry and grab some bread yeast, put it in her prune juice and hide it in a dark corner of your dungeon...er, her basement. Thennnnn, you add that to your non alcoholic beer. Don't forget to secondary your prune wine.

How much is bread yeast? That's pretty cheap right?

Looking back, I wish someone would have told me about fermenting Koolaid. I could have had just as much fun in the dorms, but spent a lot less.
