Do any of you know any Romanian recipes? I'm looking for a Romanian beer, wine, ect recipe. I have some very close family friends who moved here from Romania about 25 years ago. I'd love to suprise them with a batch of beer simliar to something they drank in their old home.

*EDIT* I know I messed up the title.
bottled: German Oktoberfest
primary: Ed's Apfelwein
secondary: none
upcoming: O' Flannagain Stout, Ed's Haus Pale Ale,EvilTOJ's McMenamins Ruby Clone

I would think lack of availability of beers from Romania might make finding a clone recipe difficult. The only native brew I know of is Timisoreana, which, if I remember correctly, was a decent German-style lager. Certainly not the best beer I had on that trip, but probably the only Romanian beer I had. Good luck in your search!
Kegged: Bohemian Pilsner; Czech Dark Lager; Citra/Calipso IPL; Cream Ale; Cherry Cider; Dry Stout

Man, I thought this was a "Romulan Ale" thread, you know Star Trek, bright green, toasts' you, and leaves you with a massive headache.

I think that like the old Yugoslavia, they tend to drink their wines and beers instead of exporting them. I used to be able to get limited wines when I was in Italy many years ago, but sorry I have no recipes.
In Primary: Belgium Chimay clones.
In Secondary: Braggot, pale ale, end of the world white.
Conditioning: Mead, Cider, braggot, Belgium Wheat.
On Tap: Clones, Chimay Blue, Red, Porter, malted cider.
Bottles: Far, far, too many to list.

When I was there last summer my favorite was Ursus Black, although the Ursus regular ( ) was pretty good too. I liked them both better than Timisoreana, although interestingly enough I heard that Tuborg brews a lot of beer there for distribution in Europe.
