Ginger Beer

Ingredients

  • 1 can Brigalow Ginger Beer™
  • 1 kg Dextrose
  • 1 x Coopers Beer Enhancer No.2™
  • 1/2 cup of grated fresh ginger

Day 1: SG 1035

Day 10: SG 1005, 1g gelatin added (finings)

Day 13: Bottled 30 x 750 ml PET bottles with 7 g priming sugar per bottle

Notes

Sediment settled nicely and brew remained slightly cloudy. Nice flavour but needed more ginger. We have since discovered cans contain precious little ginger. I think we will make it up from scratch next time…

First Batch Ever

We will be making our homebrew recipes available for all ((hic)).  Kate will be writing them up and they will be in a separate category for your Bacchanalian pleasure.

Ingredients

  • 1 can Brigalow Ale ™
  • 500 g powdered malt extract

Day 1: SG 1040

Day 8: SG 1010, finings added

Day 13: Bottled 30 x 750 ml PET – used 7 g priming sugar per bottle.

Notes

Crystal clear! The ‘homebrew’ tang took approx. three weeks to clear.

We saved a couple of bottles and had them a year later – still wonderful!
