The Quick 5 to homemade Ginger Beer

1. Juice it up! No, really.

Don’t forget to add freshly squeezed lime juice. It lowers the ph level and prevents micro-organisms from forming. Don’t like lime? Try grape fruit juice instead.

2. Yeast needs the heat

Yeast needs to be in a warm place for it to ferment. Make sure you place it in the kitchen for a nice, smooth ferment.

3. Keep an eye on your beer

Fermentation is tricky. Ferment your beer too long and you’ll have to start all over again. So keep tabs on the time- download an app if you have to.

4. Use your head (space)

 Head space in the container or bottle is important. Fermentation releases gases that need room. So don’t forget to give your bottle some space.

5. Easy Check

Check if your fermentation is in the game or not before you open your bottle. Squeeze the bottle and see if it leaves a dent. If it springs back, you’re good to go.
