1 gallon water
4 oz fresh ginger root
2 cups sugar (brown or white sugar)
1 Tbsp Brewers Yeast (but check with your local brewing shop – the amount of yeast often varies with the type of yeast used)
(Makes approximately 1 gallon)
Instructions for Ginger Beer:
Peel the ginger and slice into thin slices. Mix the water with the sugar. Add the ginger and the rind from 1 lemon. Boil for 45 minutes. Slice the lemons, add to the boil, and boil for a further 15 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Add yeast and let stand overnight.
Strain off the liquid and bottle in very strong beer bottles. Let stand at room temperature for about 12 -24 hours to carbonate. Place bottles in the fridge or cool place.
**Caution…, this is potent stuff so handle the bottles with care and open very carefully.
