Ginger Beer Bug
The one that your grandmother may have made:
Place a few raisins into a preserving jar and add the following: Day 1 - 2t sugar + 2c water Day 2 - 2t sugar + 2t ginger Day 3 - 2t sugar Day 4 - 2t sugar + 2t ginger Day 5 - 2t sugar Day 6 - 2t sugar + 2t ginger Day 7 - 2t sugar Day 8 - pour liquid into a large bowl. Halve the amount of the bug, go back and start again at Day 1 Once you’ve completed it all again, pour off the liquid and add :
2c of sugar which has been dissolved in 2c of boiling water
12c of cold water plus the juice of two lemons
Bottle, with 3 raisins added to each bottle and seal carefully – tie corks on. Leave a week and then refrigerate to stop the tops blowing off
