Low-Alcohol beer

A co-worker doesn't drink alcohol for religious reasons, so he asked if I'd ever made non-alcoholic beer. I never had but now i was curious. I found a great article on the subject and decided to try it on my next batch.

This past Saturday, a new batch of Red Ale was ready for kegging, so i put 4 gallons in one keg and put the last gallon in a pot in the oven. After about 30 minutes I took it out and kegged it. On Sunday I did a taste test and discovered that while i could tell the difference and the normal batch tasted better, without the A/B test, the second batch still tasted great. But it's definitely not non-alcoholic, just low-alcohol. May have to leave it in the oven longer. But hey, that's quite a bit of alcohol calories removed from the beer.
