Oh surely it wouldn't be real ginger beer without a sultana in it!

Does this taste similar to the ginger beer made with a bug!

Have you had a 24hr one explode on you at all harrislucinda! Its the exploding part that is making me nervous! Yet I love ginger beer so much!.Has anyone tried using splenda sugar or using sucaryl as to try to make a diet version!

You need the sugar to feed the yeast and make it fizzy.Reducing the sugar as above would reduce the chance of it exploding.I bought yeast yesterday with this recipe in mind.Must make it now!

Can anyone clarify the "1.2tsp cream of tartar"!Is that half a teaspoon!

olwen, Jan 26, 7:21am
I did that, with a bit extra lemon juice and 1/2 cup sugar.I'll see how it goes tomorrow

I realised I used tartaric scid, not cream of tartar, but I'm sure it will be okay

If I don't have any cream of tarter can I still make it!

Mine is meant to stand for 3 weeks, but is ready to start using in one week.Think it might have something to do with the hot weather.Haven't had any blow-up yet!

Dave,I really love our tips. I have been doing TV proctduion a long time and I always learn from you. I do appreciate the way you break things down into understandable chunks of information.Nearly 190 years ago Agustine-Jean Fresnel developed the multi-part lens. He was a unique individual. Today, we might think of him as ADHD, put him on drugs and in a special class and the Fresnel lens would have never been developed. The lens was first developed for use in lighthouses and they still are used for that today. It is not unusual for a 12-foot Fresnel lens with a thousand watt lamp to be seen 20-to-25 miles out to see. That is amazing.Because the lens (and the TV light we use that has that lens) is named for Fresnel there are two things I hope you will realize. First, he is French and in pronouncing his name the S is silent and the emphasis is on the second syllable of the word (pronounced fru-NEL). Second, because the lens is named for a person it is always capitalized.Again, thank you for all you do.Ken
