    Recipe ingredients and directions:

     Ross requested a recipe for ginger beer. This is a recipe that I have 

    often used and it produces a really old-fashioned drink. It is quite a

    long process but well worth the effort. The amount of sugar in the

    final stage can be varied according to taste. Please excuse the use of

    Imperial measures - I am only a poor ignorant pom.

    OLD-FASHIONED GINGER BEER

    FOR THE STARTER:

    1/2 oz yeast

    2 tsp sugar

    TO FEED THE "PLANT":

    7 tsp ground ginger

    7 tsp sugar

    TO FLAVOUR:

    1.5 lb 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.
