    It's a home-brew kit, similar to Mr. Beer a la Canada...think milk in a bag

    MB Bottle Brew is craft-brewed, the same way all premium beers are made. Then, instead of fermenting it, we bottle it. After you buy it, you simply add our specially selected brewer�s yeast which triggers the fermentation in your home, right in the bottle.

    10-12 days later, you�ll have the freshest tasting beer possible. It�s like a fresh baked loaf of bread versus day old bread. There really is no comparison.
    ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I read that on the website, that makes sense. So they do an all grain batch, steep the grains and boil it with hops etc and just stick it in a bottle as a sugar water and then give you the yeast.

    The percentage of alcohol is predetermined by the amount of fermentable sugar dissolved. It is not dependent on the amount of yeast added. We strongly recommend to not add any additional sugar, molasses, honey or maple syrup, which can cause extreme fermentation and potentially cause the bottle to explode.
    I am curious how it does not explode anyway.... From what I can see it looks like it comes with a second cap to seal it up after you add the yeast, but no blow off valve.

    I wonder how long the liquid wort can sit in a bottle like that before one begins the fermentation process and still produce good beer?

    wow, i gotta see how this comes out.

    back in the 80's a convenience store near me sold ready-to-drink beer in two-liter bottles. not quite sure why that never caught on.
