My wife just started a medication that she cannot drink alcohol with, but she likes homebrew. Are there any non-alcoholic recipes?

To make any beer non-alcoholic, you just put it in the oven after fermentation at about 175 degrees and boil for 25-30 minutes to burn the alcohol off, then bottle it..........

If you bottle it will produce some alcohol when you prime and naturally carb, kegging and force carbing are a safer bet or not?

The yeast is dead after that heat so I guess CO2 is the way to go.

Every n/a beer contains a percentage of alcohol even the ones you can buy at the gas station have .07ish%

I don't have CO2 equipment so I was planning on adding yeast and sugar to carbonate. But I am not sure how much yeast to use. Any suggestions?

The article I read said it would bring it up to .5% but that will work for me.
