InI make my own Kombucha which has less than 1% alcohol. InI also wanted to start a thread here and ask Rasta about it.
I think the Nazarite vow states that all fermented products be avoided including fermented vegetables [even with no alcohol] is not recommended.
The yeasts that are added to ferment these items break down living cells and create dead things and bacteria in the foods and drinks. Many people consider these unclean foods due to the presence of tiny insect like critters. Some say these improve gut health. But bible talks much about avoiding eating crawling things and unclean foods.
Statistically, those who drink 1 small alcohol a day live longer than those that dont, but I think there is much more to these 'statistics' that babylon tell everyone.
InI prone to excess glutamate, which is an excitatory neurotransmitter. So fermented items and even ripe tomatoes, mushrooms, kiwifruit, oranges tend to unbalance my mind. I avoid onions an garlic too like most serious Hindu and Taoist do.
I think if Ras Runman very serious Rasta, avoiding all things like in the Nazarite vow is best.
But if Rasta is also eating foods that affect the mind like processed foods, caffeine, or meats and onions etc, an alcohol drink now and then is the same
