Raisin Wine

Disclosure: I will drink anythin - ANYTHIN - but there is no way I'd drink this unless I was a pathetically lonely teen with no friends (that looked) old enough to buy cheap beer for me. I think I'd even go for that hideous bile-flavored "dandelion" crap before I'd try this. Hell, I'd probably even drink nail polish remover first. Thanks to Mrs. Gertrude Black for sharin this with us. Bottoms up!

4 lbs. raisins
1 quart Welch's grape juice (don't go tryin to use the cheap shit - this is high quality stuff right here)
4 lbs. sugar
1/2 cake yeast (why cake yeast? what is cake yeast? if I used bread yeast, would the world end? how do I get a 1/2 cake yeast anyway?)
7 c. hot water

How to:
Combine ingredients. Stir for 26 days. (my, but that's a specific length of time...also, I'm pretty certain my arm will fall off after a solid 2 hours of stirrin, so I shudder to think what will happen after 624 hours of such activity.) Put in a jug (preferably a cartoon one marked 'XXX') and let yeast set on the bottom. Put in bottles and put top on lightly. (or what - it will turn into a diet-Coke-and-Mentos-style geyser? this sure sounds dangerous and messy, and I'm not just talkin about what will happen if you actually drink it.)
