Hi. . our favourite. . no brewing. . make as you want it. . and enjoy. .

In a 1. 5 litre fizzy bottle, place 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp ground ginger and the juice of a lemon.
Half fill the bottle with water, place the lid on and shake well until the sugar is dissolved.
Fill to the top with water.
Add 6 sultanas or raisins, place the lid on and leave in a warm areatill the bottle feels tight with the pressure.
Chill well and it's ready. .
So easy - and you can make a few bottles at a time. .

For lemonade, omit the ginger and make as above. .

Ginger Beer

GINGER BEER PLANT:
6 sultanas, juice of 1 lemon, 2 teaspoons sugar, 1 tsp ground ginger, ½ tsp lemon pulp,
150ml (¼pint) cold water.

GINGER BEER:
250g (8oz) sugar, 300ml (½pint) boiling water, 1. 5 litres (2½ pints) cold water.

Put all the ingredients in a screw topped jar and leave for 3 days. On each of the next 4 days add 1 teaspoon sugar and ½ tsp ground ginger. On the following day, strain and add
the juice of 1 lemon to the liquid. Dissolve the sugar in the boiling water, then add the cold water. Pour onto the strained ginger beer plant. Mix and pour into sterilized screw-topped bottles or jars. It will be ready to drink after about 3 weeks.
Makes about 1. 6 litres (2 3/4 pints)
NOTE: If a continuous supply is wanted, double the ingredients for the plant and also double the daily feed. After straining, retain half the sediment, add 150 ml (¼ pint) cold water and continue to feed as above.
