DIRECTIONS

  • Chop up the ginger root, use 3 oz if you want it stronger.
  • Simmer the ginger, juices, and sugars in 1 ½ quart of water for 30 mintues to an hour. The longer you leave it simmer, the stronger it will be.
  • Remove heat and strain through a kitchen strainer.
  • Mix the brew with the other 3 quarts of water.
  • Let it all cool till it’s lukewarm.
  • Inside a small jar, stir in 1/8 teaspoon of yeast in with 1⁄4 cup warm water (not hot!) Bread yeast will work but ale yeast from a homebrew store is preferred.
  • After 15 minutes, add the yeast solution to your lukewarm brew.
  • Sit for 10 minutes.
  • Bottle it in 8 - 12 oz bottles.
  • Bottling:
  • Make sure you CLEAN your bottles inside and out, rinse and air dry.
  • How to use plastic bottles:
  • Pour in the brew and twist the caps on tight.
  • Squeeze the bottles and notice how they give.
  • Every few hours, squeeze them and see how they are giving. They will get harder to squeeze. When they no longer give any more, put them in the fridge.
  • Drink cold and enjoy!
  • If you used glass bottles, put them in the fridge after a day.
  • Don't want to use yeast? Substitute a carbonated water like club or seltzer water in place of that extra 3 quarts of water.
