Grretings,
One of our german postdocs described an alcoholic beverage he
consumed while in Nepal. A large urn partailly filled with millet or
similar grain was brought out, and then hot water was poured over the
top. It immediately started producing bubbles, and the beverage is
supposed to be consumed through straws. He described the taste as mostly
hot alcohol, but he doesn't remember much more than that. It was sold
as "authentic nepalese beer".

Does anyone know what this concoction is, and is it possible for
fermantation to take place that rapidly? It would save me a trip to
Nepal if I could get the information here :-)

Scott
