I heard an interview with this guy on the radio yesterday. Dopplebach I believe is the beer he created his own recipe from and worked with a local brewer to brew him enough to make it through lent, as a home brewer he wasn't able to prepare enough for the journey. 4 12 oz bottles a day and 5 on weekends. interesting, he seems to think this will grant him 1200 calories a day. @ 7% alcohol he ought to be able to get quite a buzz on just 1

you actually can. not comfortably, but most liquors and beers contain the 7 minerals to sustain life, an example being that during the black plague all of the people in the breweries and stills never got infected since they rarely drank the water on its own.

Actually, there are 13 essential minerals. The key here is to make sure the beverage in question contains the 9 essential (adult) 10 (youth) amino acids which must be ingested on a daily basis to maintain normal physiological status. Its highly unlikely a human could sustain life for an extended period of time on alcohol (beer) alone. Physiological breakdown or degradation would begin almost immediately as it's highly unlikely all the essential amino acids could be present in a beer. Yeast consumes a few of these in the process of brewing or so some internet literature suggests. Not certain about the yeast, just repeating what I read.

black plague wasn't spread via contaminated water.

from the home of guinness.. heres a well know fact over here anyways.. a lot of nursing homes and retirement homes and old folk recovering after operations used to be given a pint of guinness to build them up after operations, me thinks it wasa ploy to keep em quiet at night.. also the blood transfusion board used to give folks a guinness after they gave blood...:yes:

I'm with Liam on this one. Something about drinking beer made with 'acid malt' doesn't set right with me. A good old imperial stout :thumbsup: is better than Guinness any day.

I've had a Guinness or two over the years but people I have known who tried a steady diet of alcohold died an early death and not a very pretty one at that. It was even worse for the families involved. Drinking isn't the big joke that people make it out to be.
