Boiling then rapidly cooling the wort pasteurizes it.

Pasteurizing homebrew is fairly common for cider/mead, when you want it to be sweet and/or carbed (since it kills the yeast). I haven't really heard many people doing it with beer though. Here is an excellent tutorial. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f32/easy...g-pics-193295/

You can't boil beer to pasteurize it; once you hit 78C you'll boil off all the ethanol!

Lookup the "low temp, long time" pasteurization method -I used it in an 1850 historical london porter after aging 1/3 of the batch on a lambic blend for a year, pasteurizing this batch and then blending with a larger batch of "fresh" london porter. I didn't want the Brett to continue working after blending and bottling as it would change the flavor profile and create bottle bombs. -It worked a treat!

So u don't pasteurize beer I guess. Even commercially. They actually filter the crap out of it! They force it through screens and filters. There's actually a website that sells them for home brewers! You would have to keg it to carbonate but especially if u brew for competition, for 100$ that's pretty good!

Why would beer need to be pasteurized to get FDA approval?

Beer is pasteurized commercially. I tried a Guinness Draught the other day, and it said right on the bottle it was pasteurized. http://www.gigfy.com/faqs.html

Pasteurization is the least of your concerns, then.
