Does alcohol kill probiotic bacteria?

**Probiotic bacteria, not antibiotics!**

I am not, in any way, advocating the frequent use of alcohol.

Furthermore, despite debate on the subject of probiotics, I have found that, for me, regular intake of probiotic rich supplement has vastly improved my general state of well-being, energy level, digestion etc...

I will also note that "Kefir" (aka; Tibetan Mushroom) is a culture. Upon being exposed to souring milk reaches it's ideal fermentation at 24-48 hours. Being a culture it grows, so it doesn't cost you a cent unless your silly enough to pay for it!
