wow, this would be so easy, lines of beer and wine straight to the brain. you never have to taste it or bother with that pesky thing called swallowing. also, for the light weights, you never find yourself in a position to have to get into a chugging contest. i say do, powder the beer. it can only be for the best.

Well, no, I wouldn't. I wouldn't drink the unpowdered stuff either, but that is a bit beside the point. Those who do drink it I presume do so, at least in part, for the effect of the alcohol. In dehydrated form, that would be gone I would think. Have you ever tasted what powdering does for milk? I can only imagine if you start out with something that smells spoiled to begin with.

When the zombies are coming thru the wire, we'll wish for the good old days of powdered beer.

They already make concentrated beer. It's called Bourbon.

Powdered? I'm not that desperate. I would think anyone who is may have a drinking problem.

Why in the world would I need powdered booze? Are the riots about to erupt? Even if they were, Prospector rigged that line from Free State to the bunker.

If it is mixed with Free State Beer.

Is there a Mr. Wizard out there that knows if alcohol can be dried or are the directions mix with a thimble of Everclear and water?

Never in a million years.

There's something wrong, seriously wrong, with the whole concept.

If that's all there was, maybe. As long as I had some bottled water.

I have no problem with that. Can be done fast, easily and without pregnancy. And it will not make you blind.

And in case you don't think today's US news is eye opening enough: NHS tells school children of their "right" to "an orgasm a day" http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/5806691/NHS-tells-school-children-of-their-right-to-an-orgasm-a-day.html

Yes, the wine I would put in capsules. There is a lot to be said for the reversatrol. Would they be alcohol-free?

My favorite would be cold and free, second favorite is hot and free, third would be powdered and free.
