Maybe Concentrated rather than powdered? on 02/22/2006 17:19:35 MST Print View

Typically, alcohol will evaporate (in the drying process) faster than water during a drying to powder process. I wonder if it is simply concentrated / fortified and is actually a liquid.

Powdered wine - for cooking on 02/22/2006 17:58:00 MST Print View

It's for cooking with - either in the backcountry (say, add some to that dried beef stew, or use it in your own dried concoctions) or at home. I confess to frequently cooking with it at home when I don't have/don't want to open a bottle of white/red; it's quite good, and potent.

Definitely worth a try if you're even a bit of a foodie; 'Adventure Foods' carries a couple o' different kinds as well.

I usually carry ethanol for stove fuel. It's expensive, but it isn't toxic (well, not like methanol anyway) and so can be used as an antiseptic. I wonder how the powdered wine would taste with a cup of filtered water and 1/4 oz of Everclear? Probably worse than an Everclear + Tang screwdriver...

Powdered wine + Everclear, then blow in the bottle for a sparkling wine?

Just be sure to dillute the Everclear 8:1 for wine and 'mixed drinks' Its way dangerous without plenty of water.
