  1. use a balloon and prick a hole in it with a pin instead of using a stopper. as the gas builds up the ballon expands and releases gas through the pin hole.

    Can I use regular active yeast instead of champagne yeast? 

  4. I'm from the UK and you lost me at 1 1/4 cup

  5. Wine…not beer

  6. That is ginger wine, not ginger beer..

  7. no beer without grains !

  8. I made ginger beer and never used yeast at all. It was made in a short period of time also. I never used a stopper either. just a cloth and then a lid left loose for two weeks.
    I strained it a few times and then we had a finished product.

    How much does this make? It appears to be fermenting in a 1 gal jug. Did you add more water when you bottled the beer, or to make 5 gal should I just add 5x the ingredients?




  11. can i get drunk from this 

  12. can I do this with out cooking the ginger and get a probiotic effect??

  13. Your Bad-ass level just went up in my book.

  14. The sediment in the bottom is called 'slurry'
    If you get a beer/wine hydrometer with a beaker, you can measure the alcohol by volume (ABV). That way you can either add or subtract the sugars to lower or increase the ABV. The hydrometer has 3 scales on it.

  15. Just clarifying if you ferment it for 4 weeks or less, and when it's done and I prime it with sugar when will it be done carbonating (I heard that you should leave it in the bottles for 1-2 days before refrigerating it to stop the fermenting). Anyways it looks like a great recipe, can't wait to try it! 

  16. Ummm… 100% awesome.

  17. I have been home brewing for over 6 yrs. I have made Ginger beer. This video is very good. I will do this one soon. I also purchase green coffee beans and roast my own in a air popper that you use for popcorn. Works great . I do this until the beans are very dark and oily. Fantastic coffee.

    Got it. Thanks for the reply!

  19. All the wineries I've been to say they ferment around 55-65. That's what i try to maintain. I just visited a brewery here that ferments at 80-90. But that's beer. The brewmaster there said bottom-fermenting yeasts (like in this video) need much cooler temps than top-fermenting yeasts (like they use for beer).

  20. If you prime it, it will be a little fizzier and sweeter. Go for it.

    If it's fizzier, there will be more pressure. So, a bottle with a mechanism to hold the stopper in, like a Grolsch bottle (if that's what you mean by "swing-top), would be good. Just keep them cold. That should help keep the CO2 in solution.
