Podpiwek, anyone?

They used to sell something called podpiwek in Polish food shops. It was a powder mix and with it you could create a beer-like beverage. Is it still available? I never made it but I did try it. The beer came out yeasty and cloudy but supposedly such were the beers of yesteryear -- cloudy, with sediment and not very bubbly. Nothing like today's ultra-filtered, golden, fizzy lagers.

Has anyone on PF actually tried it, ie either tried making it or at least tasted it? I met visitors from Canada back when who used to stock up on the stuff whenever they came to Poland.

It tastes like a very light beer--the same way as we used to buy used whiskey barrels and make "swish"--watered down booze.
