My query assumed Whurest needed to import the stuff that ferments. My query was whether or not the dwarves can ferment the IMPORTED fermentable organic matter themselves, or whether or not they need to import their beverages pre-fermented.

As ale weighs a lot more than the barley used to make it (mostly water by volume and weight), I assume even extra-strong dwarven ale weighs more than brewstuff.

However, dwarves are finicky and may want only the best stuff, dammit, even if they have to import from Sundabar, or Avanthyr.

I can see either situation being plausible, given Whurest is a small mining/smithing hold. So in my opinion we should stick with the DM's gut response. We import Ale.
