Thread: Stella

    Re: Stella

    Let's be honest if someone is going to stop drinking lager because it has gone down from 4.8 to 4.6 percent and switch to a stronger brew , they are an alcoholic and need to go and see their doctor before their liver packs in

    Albright or Welsh Bitter at 3% or so was the mainstay bitter back in the day. Skull Attack was a feared drink.

    Thatís how you make alcohol. You donít add it

    Not as 'reassuringly expensive' as it used to be.
    Thatís exactly why they do it as well as reducing their tax burden which is laid in 0.1 degrees of ABV. Itís why Carling went from 4.1 to 4% about 12-13 years ago...

    You and your neighbour make it sound like the brewery is deliberately trying to poison its customers ! The process of making beer/lager is a natural chemical process. There is nothing illegal contained in it. They cant ‘ramp up’ the chemical process as you put it - they just make more to meet demand. If you drank five pints of any liquid in a row, including water, then anyone could feel a ‘bit ill’.

    I wonder if they treat the water with salts and other minerals. That could be what he is thinking off when he says they add chemicals.
    Edit
    They could also add finings

    Yes but you said "Itís beer. There are no chemicals in it."
    You should have said there are no added chemicals.

    Reducing alcohol content by .2% will have a big impact on taste for many.

    Their 4% stuff was the most vile lager you could get your hands on.

    Some do - I'm not sure about Stella - there's preservatives and colourings etc.
