Not criticising the bug, Elaine. It had a great, rich taste. However, it required work to keep it fed. At $3 for 22 liters, I'm happy to be a lazy bugga.
The 'Ginger Beer Plant' used to make a very drinkable drop. Whatever it was, add Ginger and sugar and away you go. Never made it myself but have appreciated many a glass of it.
It is a champaign yeast mate. Costs all of $3 per 22 litre batch (+1 kg of sugar and ginger which I grow). There is no "bug" like in the old days.
Thanks Andy, will do very soon ... just hide most of it, I have a feeling it kinda goes down well.
Do you keep that GB culture going, that is, can you seed a new batch with a bit of the old? or is that just the wild bug thing?
It's just a recycled beer bottle Rob. Perfect size and seals really well. You have to come for a sample.
Terrific Andy, did I miss something in the vid about the bottle, is it a recycled beer bottle? The Ginger Beer, the bottle and the opening looks great! I really wanted to smell that ginger, while watching the video .... and drink it too :)
I bloody did it! Have a look....
A short (2 min) video opening and testing the ginger beer.
Okay... yeast nutrient, sumac powder and dark malt extract - that must be to make it taste more "beerish". I've also seen the addition of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
And this is how it starts... obsessive Andy is off and running again. LOL.
I would love to make (alcoholic) ginger beer. When you have the natural recipe sorted I would love to learn more.
