Over Night Ginger Beer

27 Oct

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 Tbs ground ginger
  • Juice of about 3 lemons
  • 6 cups hot water
  • 10 cups cold water
  • 1 tsp yeast

Dissolve sugar and ginger in the hot water.  Add lemon juice and cold water (you want to end up with lukewarm).  In a small bowl dissolve the yeast in a few tablespoons of the mix.  Add the yeast mix to the main bowl, and stir it in.  Fill bottles, leaving a couple of inches of air.  Screw lids on tightly (they seal harder if they have been sitting in warm water first), then let bottles sit overnight, and it should be done.

I recommend sticking with plastic bottles while you are getting the hang of it.  With plastic you can check if the beer is ready by squeezing the bottle, if the bottles are firm it’s ready to be moved to a cool place.  Chill before opening.  Be sure to open it slowly!
