Ginger beer
Method
  • Peel a piece of ginger with a spoon.
  • Grate with a cheese grater, using the fine blades.
  • In a saucepan, heat the sugar, water and ginger.
  • Boil until the sugar melts. Set the mixture aside for 1 hour, to cool.
  • Pass the mixture through a sieve and store in the refrigerator.
  • Pour the chilled ginger syrup into a 2 liter PLASTIC bottle. Add the lemon juice and brewer’s yeast and the remaining water.
  • Set aside in a dark place for 24 hours.
  • The mixture will form air bubbles in the botte due to fermentation. You will know it is ready when you won’t be able to squeeze on the bottle any more. It will seem like it is slightly swollen.
  • Store in the refrigerator for 4 days.
  • The chill from the refrigerator will lessen the fermentation but it will not stop it. Twist the cap off every now and then to let some of the carbon dioxide that builds up inside the bottle, escape.
  • ALWAYS store in a PLASTIC bottle.

 

Tip
