    Lots of ginger flavor, on a mild orange background. I went ahead and added yeast to make the beer. I let it ferment overnight on top of the refrigerator, then carbonate five days in the refrigerator.

    So good! I loved the orange and lemon in it and it tasted of lemonade with the spice of ginger! I'm keeping the base, and putting about a1/4 cup in a glass and pouring over club soda. Thanks!

    We loved the full ginger flavor. I cheated and bought minced ginger in a jar and it turned out great. Company loved it. Made for newest tag. Thanks wicked for a great beverage.
