ginger beer

here are a few shots of what goes into the ginger brew we have been making a whole lot of lately. 

 it's actually really simple.  it starts out with a "ginger bug" or start which we feed a bit of sugar and ginger each day until it's bubbly and alive with wild yeast.

after the bug is ready all you have to do is boil a whole bunch of grated ginger (i like mine super gingery), water, sugar and lemon juice, cool it, and add the ginger bug, strain. then bottle and wait at least a week for it to get fizzy and tasty.

this is about our fifth batch and we're keeping our ginger bug alive so we can keep a steady supply!
