This vlogger turned Percy Pigs into beer and it's everything you dreamed it would be
There’s nothing quite like savouring the sweet chewiness of a Percy Pig gummy, but now one home brewer has taken them a step further.
While the sweets are suitable for most ages, a YouTube vlogger has decided to turn the innocent piglets into beer.
The home brewer, known as Beer Uncapped on YouTube, condensed the six-week production and fermenting process into a six-minute tutorial.
Two packets of Percy Pigs were used to create the beverage, which, due to its high sugar content, works out at about 6% ABV – slightly higher than the average alcohol content for a beer, which is 4.5%.
The result is a frothy, pinkish-red offering that is likely to get you “very” drunk. And yes, according to Beer Uncapped, it really does taste like Percy Pigs.
The brewer told the Press Association: “I’m a hobby vlogger and home brewer who’s been brewing for about two years. I love Percy Pigs and, after a tipsy conversation with a mate, I wondered if I could put them in a beer.
“I love beer and I love Percy Pigs so it seemed like a great combo. So, in my spare time, for a bit of fun I’ve been refining this recipe. I was doing beer reviews and thought I would make a snazzy video of how to make the beer.”
Beer Uncapped even added a snazzy “Gettin’ Piggy With It” label to the bottle. It’d be hard to resist it on a supermarket shelf.
