Apparently, it's a big contraband down in the Sudan. According to the article, it's actually good enough it would still sell if alcohol were legal. Would it be about the same to make as raisin wine, perhaps?

It says the gin is a distilled beverage, so of course we can't make it.

Primary: Edwort's Robust Porter, Hard Lemonade
Secondary: Air
Bottled: Apfelwein, Wheat Stout, Edwort's Haus Pale Ale
Thinking about: more Citrus Hefeweizen, Strawberry Blonde, Apple Graff, Lambics

I have a gallon of date wine going now, it's been I believe 6 or 8 weeks so far. It's in secondary.

I tasted it when I racked it off the lees, it's like rocket fuel but will be nice when it mellows.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew
