    I'm not seeing the appeal. You can already get shots of whiskey, vodka, etc., in little plastic pouches. Why would you need the aggravation of having to dissolve this powder?

    I wouldn't buy it but I'm not the one to ask, I don't drink. Ever.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Alcohol poisoning in the kiddies. Should not be tolerated. Too risky.

    I think it's an interesting idea, and I don't see what the outrage is. The ratio of powder to liquid is just about 1:1, so it isn't super concentrated and dangerous. I kinda side with the creator that the recent push for legislation against it has nothing to do with actual danger but rather to do with the alcohol lobby.

    What does this have to do with kids? How is powder any different from liquid when speaking of availability to children? The ratio is about 1:1, so there is functionally no difference.

    I think the anti folks are saying the risks outweighs the possible benefits of the product by a large margin.

    I voted other as it is unlikely I would ever buy it or try it. I have far outgrown the stage of drinking to be drinking. I am more into quality at this stage in the game, and I have serious doubts they will ever make a great tasting powdered beer or smooth Powdered whiskey.

    The freezing point of pure ethanol is -173 F. So how does palcohol even work? That's colder than dry ice!

    Indeed.

    But you can now have libations on the trail when you're backpacking.
