    Punky Julster's Note:

    This recipe came from the Christchurch Press a couple of years back and makes excellent ginger beer. You can add more sugar afterwards if you like it sweeter.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put first measure of sugar in warm water to dissolve, add yeast and stir.
    2. 2
      Place in warm place to start working.
    3. 3
      Finely grate or slice rind from 2 lemons and place in a heatproof container with the 1 cup of sugar and the dried ginger.
    4. 4
      Pour over 1 cup of boiling water and leave to steep for 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Strain into 1.5 L plastic bottle in which the ginger beer will be made.
    6. 6
      Top up bottle with cool water to near top so that final temp is approximately body temperature.
    7. 7
      Add yeast to bottle as soon as it shows signs of working, ie. it foams.
    8. 8
      Cap bottle tightly.
    9. 9
      Mix thoroughly and put in a warm place.
    10. 10
      Leave until bottle becomes undentable. Depending on the yeast this can take anything from 12 hours to 3 days, but best to check regularly, as there is a risk of explosion with this!
    11. 11
      Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled and open with great care!
