I almost hate to stoop to flaming Jack S, but ...

Brewing (according to Funk & Wagnalls) is the process of making fermented
undistilled liquids, as beer or ale.

It is the fermentation process which determines if you are brewing,
not the process up to the point of fermentation. In fact, one may argue
that producing NA beer may not be brewing. As I read the laws in Canada,
they relate to alcoholic beverages - which dictate what I can or can
not do with my product. Non-Alcoholic beverages fall under different
legislation which are much more relaxed than for alcoholic beverages.

As for the mashing, etc. Jack should maybe talk to the Wine Industry and
inform them that they are not "BREWING."

Keep your hops on straight!
