My advice is post first and think later. Or don't think later... it's not all that necessary.

Beer and wine at least have a good amount of what they're made from left in there. Gin and such, well, not so much.

Personally, I love drinking my 'bread'. I also enjoy this way of gaining my B-Complex RDA.

Think???



Just remember, when the zombie apocalypse finally does come (or just the apocalypse) those that can render water safe, and help people forget about their other issues (even if for only a while) will become KINGS!! I just hope that bees are also still around, so we can make mead.

Personally, I don't mind/care that mead doesn't have the nutritional value that beer does. It cures other ailments. Almost as effective as Fukitol...

As if you needed another reason to love hoppy beers...Study says humulone from hops helps block virus causing cold-like symptoms in adults.Study Suggests That A Bracing Regimen Of Beer Could Ward Off The Winter Sniffles. Head line for brew your own mag on facebook. Enough reason for me.

The above is not true. I have a cold now, and it isn't because I'm not getting enough nutrition.

I'm well versed with the idea of fermenting a beverage to gain the b-complex benefits, namely fruit juices. It's very easy to add a pinch of yeast to some fruit juice (preservative free, of course) wait a day or two an reap the benefits.

I was referring more to the idea of a beer-beverage consumed namely for its nutritional content, as above noted with the Chicha.

I've done some reading about adding adjuncts like blackstrap molasses which adds bitterness and a slight caramel flavor (really, molasses flavor) to finished dark beers for the sole purpose of improving the body and mineral content of the finished beer.
