Thanks for spreading the word… we’re working tirelessly and making good strides. Always more to do. Still not able to offer a date for product availability/launch.
You are indeed correct about the beer. Can’t really remove alcohol and still call it “beer”. Our concentrate is a syrup that has all the normal alcohol, aroma, and flavors of a beer… but without the water. It will be packaged in little foil pouches similar to the plethora of energy gels that are on the market. You would simply tear one open, mix it with water in our water bottle, and then carbonate with our carbonator. The packets will be right at 1 fl oz. and make a one pint serving (16 fl oz)
The process we’ve developed is a bit complicated for a quick reply, and we will soon have more detailed info through the web… but the basic process involves brewing a beer inside of a beer, and thus making it more concentrated with every cycle of fermentation. We’ve coined the term “nested fermentation” for this step of the process. Lots of complexities to doing this (as you might imagine).
Thanks for your continued interest. I’ve contemplated joining the conversation at backpacklight… but have been slow to comment just because we don’t have product for sale yet. Rest assured… we’ll be joining the conversation soon.
Take it easy & happy trails.
