Title: Just Add Water
Post by: Siamese Moose on February 13, 2014, 09:41:26 PM
I just came across this during one of those idle sessions of following links. They had a booth at the London Bike Show, of all places! The price is 29.95 in British pounds (I can't find the symbol for pounds right now).

Real Ale at home does not get any easier than this!

Turn water into traditional Real Ale using the Moonshine brewing bag. To repeat Water is all you add into our unique, patented system to brew pint after pint of genuine Real Ale.

Two years in development with academic partners (Nottingham Trent University and Nottingham University) has resulted in our superb new system. The bag itself contains virtually all you need; just pour in 23 pints of tap water, add the contents of the enclosed sachet of ‘Moondust’ and leave for two weeks.

The result is 25 pints of Real Ale.

No more expensive, cumbersome equipment (which often ends up in the attic), just a bag of Moonshine, water and ten minutes of your time.

That looks like something I'd try just for giggles. That "Moondust" must be some wacky kind of yeast man...

Wow.  And why not?  that is sure going to be bad news for the couple of 'brewing appliances' being developed.

The implications though. Where does all the co2 go? Presumably it is contained? ???

Naturally carbonated.  Like bottle conditioned.  Emphasis on the 'Live Beer' statement which would garner some important support in England and beyond.  I really like the idea.  This would be so easy to start a business doing its laughable.  LME, hop extract, and a packet of dry yeast in a bag.  Genius.

When I turned 21 (all so many years ago) I was given a "Beer In A Bag". Just add hot water. I don't recall if there was a yeast packet or not. Shake, store, serve. For what it was I remember it not being too bad. The first third was nicely carbonated and the rest just went down hill from there.
I must say that it gave me the start to home brewing. It just took me a few years to jump all in.

Not sure if I'd add the water and wait just to see, or slice it open with a knife to see what's in there.

That is taking Brew in a Bag to its ultimate level!

Ha... This is how I started out too, about 20 years ago. The results were terrible, but the science of it all was intriguing enough to have me hooked.
