Brewing this beer…..

You will require 250g of currants and 250g of raisins, some good quality rum (roughly 100m) to add to this all grain recipe kit.

Jonny bottled his beer and primed the bottles using the remaining candy sugar.

The total grain bill for this brew is 8.3kg, so it is certainly not for the faint hearted and will push many all in one systems to their limits.

Note: The recipe kit is a revised recipe by Jonny after tasting the beer so don’t be surprised if the quantities in the video don’t match this kit.
