    So I was reading the latest issue of BA magazine and the article about swanky beer really piqued my interest.

    I am thinking of trying this out myself and am wondering if anyone on here has actually experimented with a version of this "beer"?

    I don't want to straight out ask for a recipe but I am also curious if and how yours may have differed from the recommended one from the issue. For those of you that don't subscribe, that recipe called for:

    2.5 gallons water
    2 lb white sugar
    4 oz ground ginger
    2 oz raisins
    4 oz old/stale hops
    2 oz baker's yeast

    I am also curious about using baker's yeast. Any insight on this would be awesome.

    The only thing that would really make it taste crap is the yeast used imo, or if the hops are too potent. Otherwise it's along the same lines as any number of country wines that can taste crap to good

    Is there supposed to be malt in it? Bit strange to include it in a beer magazine if theres no malt imo

    Don't you call them Hedgerow wines over there?
    Add in some Kool-Aid and that sounds like some solid Pruno to me...

    I thought you needed ketchup to make Pruno? Wasn't there a thread about ketchup beer recently? I predict that Pruno will be the next fad style once everyone gets bored with sours :slight_smile:
