Default Dandelion

Does anyone have a reliable recipe and technique for GOOD dandelion wine? My local Brew shop owner mentioned about 5qts of dandelion for a 1gal batch. He also stated there is debate over using the greens as well as the flower, and using only the flower. Would any one care to expand on this? I think, personally, I would be in the "flower only" camp.

Is Yooper paying you for this advertising?

Per exclamation point?

That dandelion recipe is really great! (It's under my avatar on the left under "recipes"). I love it, and would recommend it to anybody.

I've made it dry, and sweetened some as well, and I like it both ways.

Thanks Yooper, I just checked out your recipe, sounds good! Some of the responses to your recipe include some instruction for preparing the flowers, I'm STILL a little fuzzy on this part. Maybe someone could post a few step by step pics of prepping the flower?
Oh yeah, can I discard the raisins? maybe replace with black or raspberry? I am an anti-grapist.
