      I'm so glad to find this recipe posted here. I just finished watching the episode of America's Test Kitchen where they made this gingerbread and they never actually said how much baking soda they used. I can't rate the recipe until I've made it and I will need to go shopping first. (No fresh ginger in the house. Or stout, although I do have some lager beer. I wonder if I could substitute?) Anyway, thanks for posting the recipe. It looked very good on television and I intend to make it soon.
