Has anyone made a ginger beer before?
I currently have a ³Brigalow² brand ginger beer ticking over nicely.
My question concerns the secondary ferment in the bottle.  The sugar dosage
level is recommended at 7g per 750mL (one teaspoon).  This seems low in
comparison to other regular beers I have bottled.
Any reasons why?  Will I get explosions if I add 7g per 375mL?
Cheers

Re: Ginger Beer
Ginger BeerHi Andrew.

I have made a number of Ginger Beer runs through our fermenter (non
alcoholic) and I was amazed that I only needed to add 115g of sugar to 25
litres of Ginger beer.
When it is bottled you do not add any extra sugar at all to the bottles.

The result is a very nice tasting ginger beer which all my friends love.

I was more than impressed with the results.
