Ahh - I am right, the beers you list are made by fractional freezing, basically, rather than adding alcohol to the beer, water is removed, to increase the ABV,

 

So I don't count those as a natural brewing process.

 

However some new strains of yeast can now survive at higher levels,

 

From Wiki

 

Beer ranges from less than 3% alcohol by volume (abv) to around 14% abv, though this strength can be increased to around 20% by re-pitching with champagne yeast,[120] and to 55% abv by the freeze-distilling process.[121] The alcohol content of beer varies by local practice or beer style.[122] The pale lagers that most consumers are familiar with fall in the range of 4–6%, with a typical abv of 5%.[123] The customary strength of British ales is quite low, with many session beers being around 4% abv.[124] Some beers, such as table beer are of such low alcohol content (1%–4%) that they are served instead of soft drinks in some schools.[125]

Pure Zymology (fermentation) an ABV of 14-18% starts killing the yeast, depending on the strain of yest being used.

The USA has a constitution with a Bill of Rights...2nd amendment allows for the "right to bear arms".

 

Thanks to the NRA, who continues to fight for this right, we in the USA are able to bear arms.

 

You have this right on your little island? ever have mass shootings? Yes you have! some years ago but have things changed?

 

The small seaside town of Aramoana was the site of New Zealand's worst mass murder in modern history. After an argument with his neighbour, David Gray shot and killed 13 people before police shot him dead.

Do New Zealand's gun ownership laws need to be strengthened?

 

Thousands of firearms remain potentially unaccounted for despite a police campaign for lifetime gun licence owners to renew or hand weapons in.

 

Police national manager operations Tony McLeod said nearly 50,000 people had not responded by the end of a campaign targeting lifetime gun licence holders to renew or surrender their weapons in 2002.

NZ's 1 million unregistered guns

 

There are more than a million guns in New Zealand and it is too late to try to find all the unregistered weapons, an MP said yesterday.
