This is pretty darn good preparation for the coming zombiepocalypse....

I still maintain that he who can make some form of potable beverage, after the water system collapses, will be the leader of masses (and get all the nubile chicks.)

We'll know what stuff we need to grab when we're raiding walmart.

This will most likely turn into some kind of horrible jailhouse/post-apocolyptical, brewed in dark basements and bomb shelters kinda drink. But just like revvy said we will be the only ones with alcohol when the civilized world crashes to an end!!!!!

We'll be the snake oil salesmen of the new milenia!!!

We'll go from town to town in our horsedrawn hummers, trading our "magic barley water" for bags of rice and nubile women.

I've even got my label/sign made up

I don't konw, besides the yeast problems, I think that some of these could turn out quite good, different most definatly, depending on the process and ingrediants used. can't be any stranger than "Mountain Brew" http://byo.com/recipe/1331.html

I was considering using natural ginger beer (non-alcoholic) as the base fermentable. I also found a couple of brands of malt soda, some are even hopped. It was also suggested that bitters can be used from the mixer section of the supermarket.

For wild fruit yeasts head to the organic section and grab some peaches or grapes, don't wash them, put them in some sugar water with breathable cloth on the top in a jar, store in warm place, and wahla! starter! http://windintheroses.googlepages.com/wildyeast

I have been thinking about this thread all morning when I should be thinking about something else. The issue of the yeast concerns me the most, but keep in mind that bread yeast and top fermenting ale yeast are the same species but prepared differently. Even though, I'm still not sure I'm willing to ferment with bread yeast, so I'm leaning toward the cultivate from a bottle idea. I can see the potential here to make a suprisingly drinkable beer. Hell, if ancient civilizations could make beer that was drinkable (and apparently good to them) the only real thing standing in our way is re-defining "drinkable".

I'm thinking of doing no more than a 2-gallon batch just because this sounds like a hell of alot of fun, and might be a good skill to have in case of an apocalypse.

Here is a link for ways to culture wild yeast. Any one want to give the last one (Other options) a go?
