Ginger Beer No. 1

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Brewing

    0.25 lb Root ginger
    10.00 Bottles
    1.00 Green lemon
    4.00 lb (approximate) clear sugar
    Few grains of barley
    Cold water

Bruise the ginger but not too much as it makes the drink cloudy. Pour on the water; add the rind and juice of a fresh green lemon. Cover and leave over night. The next day, strain, sweeten and bottle adding a few grains of barley to each bottle. It takes a few days, at least, for the barley to cause the drink to ferment.

One visitor wanted me to note the following: "As a chemist, I thought I should let you know that your root beer, Finnish Simi, and ginger beer recipes, while non-alcoholic in the sense that you have not added any alcohol, really are quite potent with alcohol. You see, those innocuous little yeast beasties you added are busy turning the sugar into alcohol. It's all quite natural, but it isn't non-alcoholic by any means."
