Sometimes homebrewers wonder how to brew alcohol-free, aka Non Alcoholic beer. Of course we know it's more accurate to call it a low-alcohol beer, as commercial samples contain between 0.3 and 0.5 ABV.

Broadly speaking, there are three approaches. The first is to brew the wort at a low gravity and use a special sluggish yeast that has low sensitivity to alcohol and dies quickly when it reaches 0.5-1.0 ABV. The second way is the forced stop of fermentation with antibiotics. The third way is freezing, this is when young beer during the main fermentation is subjected to cooling -1-2 degrees Celsius. What is frozen is low-alcohol beer.
