Old Fashioned Ginger Beer
From Red Deer’s & Elenya’s

Ingredients:
For The Starter:

  • 1/2 Ounce Yeast
  • 2 Teaspoons Sugar

To Feed The "Plant":

  • 7 Teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 7 Teaspoons Sugar

To Flavor:

  • 1 1/2 Pounds Sugar
  • Juice Of 2 Lemons

Mix starter ingredients with 3/4 pint of warm water in a glass jar. Stir, cover and leave in a warm place for 24 hours. This is your starter "plant". Feed the "plant" with 1 teaspoon each of ground ginger and sugar each day. After 7 days strain through a fine sieve. Dissolve the sugar in 2 pints of water. Add the lemon juice and the liquid from the "plant". Dilute with 5 pints of water, mix well and store in corked bottles for at least 7 days. Use strong bottles as pressure may build up which will cause thin bottles to explode. For the same reason use corked bottles rather than those with a more secure closure that will not ‘give’ under pressure. The amount of sugar in the final stage can be varied according to taste.
