Miss 5 is better in the stirring and pouring departments, so when I finished off the ginger beer earlier in the week she was an excellent help.
After a week of being fed and nurtured the ginger beer plant is ready to go and the bottles are sterilised. Information about the plant recipe here.
We strained the mixture (well, I poured it off the settled sediment), add the juice of 2 lemons and reserve the sediment. Its now ready to use.
The sediment should be divided in two (you can give half to a friend, or to the chooks). Add half a pint of water, 2tsp sugar and 2tsp ginger and proceed with the feeding and nurturing as before (details in this post).
For the next stage you need...
Cold boiled water
Ginger beer plant liquid
Add the sugar to the liquid and make up to 1 gallon (4 litres) with water, stirring until the sugar has dissolved completely.
Pour into strong, dark coloured beer bottles.
