Intro: Kid's Ale: Non-alcoholic, Easy to Make Drink.
In this Instructable, I'm going to teach you how to make a drink that, according to my father, tastes like Hoegaarden, and is non-alcoholic. If you want to skip to the instructions, head down to step 1. If you want the back-story, read on.
A couple of days ago, when I was bored and we were between projects, I watched my dad mix vodka and orange juice. It's pretty simple, but I wondered; if you could mix two completely opposite things and get something good, then why not try something else?
So, I looked for something to mix.
And that's when I got my idea.

Step 1: Gather 'round the Table
This Instructable is budget friendly:
1 bottle of Poland Springs "Sparkling" water (lemon flavored, but any seltzer will do)
Apple Juice (varied amounts, depending on how much you make.)
1 teaspoon of sugar (if you want sweeter tasting ale) (OPTIONAL)
1 glass to keep it in (for personal drinking)
1 pitcher (for mass production, like parties.)
Step 2: MIX IT!
First, open the Seltzer. Open slowly, this stuff foams up fast. Next, you'll want to pour some in. Pic 2 shows about how much to put in. Then, carefully pour in the apple juice. The ratio for seltzer to juice should be 1/2:1 per cup.
Do this for however many glasses you are making. If brewing for mass quantities, use sugar to maintain flavor.
Step 3: Enjoy, and Stay Thirsty, My Friends.
And you are done! If you make this, please post what you think it tastes like. I served it to my brother and he enjoyed it.
If you are over 21, please tell me which beer it tastes like the most. I, being 13, cannot drink, so, I depend on you guys for constructive criticism.
Stay thirsty, my friends.
