Yes it is.
And it's come to my attention that I may have sounded like I was being a dumbass....That is in fact my M.O.

I was not cursing anyone out....just expressing the frustration for needing 10 characters in an adult homer simpsonesque sort of way.

Did not mean to offend.

I hoist a cyber brew to apologize.

Where can you find sultanas? Can they be replaced with currants or raisins?

I think technically sultanas are of foreign origin (Turkey or Iran, according to Wikipedia), but a lot of people just use golden raisins.

Just use the brown raisins. I didn't chop them very well. I think it's best not too, it might turn into mush if you boil it when the raisins are too fine.

I just redid the recipy with a few adjustments, I used two oranges this time and I used ~60 sultana's rather than 30. I also used a small teaspoon of groud cinnamon in stead of 2 sticks because I was out of sticks. I used only a small amount because as opposed to the sticks I have no way to remove this prior to fermenting the wort.

I will also be using champagne yeast rather than sherry yeast this time.

I'll keep you posted.
