Boozy Beets?

I'm reading up on lacto-fermenting vegetables, in preparation for my abundant harvest I'm hoping for this year.  One random article said, "Just be careful not to cut beets too small as they contain a lot of sugar and can produce alcohol."  Hmm...beet wine anyone?  Does it exist?  Further research is needed on this one!

Oh good Lord...it does exist!  http://jinman2871.wordpress.com/2009/08/12/beet-wine/  from randomly searching and found the Prairie Girl blog!

Grandma Dorothy made very good beet wines, some very good vintages over the years.

Where I found this recipe, they said there were some "stories" of grandma spending time with the wine...I remember you said someone found Grandma D. in the closet with the dandelion wine!
