This morning before leaving for cubscout campout, I decided to mix up a batch of homemade ginger ale. The recipe goes like this:
1 Cup sugar
1.5 T grated ginger (use the fibers also)
1/4 t yeast
Mix all together and pour carefully into an emply washed 2 liter soda bottle. NOTE: DO NOT USE A GLASS CONTAINER FOR THIS!
Fill the rest of the way up with cool fresh water leaving 1 inch headspace.
Shake a couple of times a day and leave on the kitchen counter to ferment.
Test the bottle by pressing in with your thumb. As soon as the bottle is hard and doesn't dent with your thumb, put the bottle in the refrigerator to stop the fermenting process. It is ready to drink. You can filter out the floaties if they bother you.
