homemade ginger beer
I found this recipe on Wired.com and Jon attempted the recipe twice. The first batch seemed more like a light ginger water. We're thinking that the water temperature the yeast was resting in was too high and the recipe didn't work quite right. Also, we think the honey used in the first batch didn't react as well with the yeast as the sugar we used the second time around did. The second batch came out great, though. It's so amazing that you can add some yeast, ginger and sugar to water and get a carbonated beverage after 24 hours! The ginger beer gets a little more yeasty tasting each day, so it's best drunk in about 24-48 hours.
