Ritchies simply ginger beer

Postby Lampie » Thu 28 Aug, 2014 2:28 pm

Ok first off I am a complete ginger beer n00b and have only tasted ginger ale.. Most of those non alcoholic ales are to sweet for my taste but i hope i got a bit of an impression of how a gingerbeer should taste.

Pics of brewing this kit will follow, have some performance problems with my macbook so will upload some pics during worktime..

Let me know how you get on with the uploading. I've totally changed how it all works. I've been coding like a demon :D

Ginger beer from a kit is an absolute doddle. Simply Ginger Beer is meant to be one of the better ones, I haven't tried it because it's quite expensive :)

I did not make pictures of all the steps there are enough good tutorials on how to brew with a kit.

But first impression is quite good, there is clear instructions on the back of the bag and there is a bag of yeast with sweetner at the bottom of the bag. To be honest I rather have a can this makes cleaning out the rest a bit easier. When you pour hot water in the bag its quite hard to clean the bag because of the heat and you cant realy hold on without burning your fingers.

But overall its a nice and easy kit to brew with clear instructions on the back.

The bag in a nice warm bath.

Used my fermenting bucket with measurements and its easier to stir everything.

When i mixed everything i transferred it to my other brewbucket

Its 7 days in the fermentation so will bottle it this weekend and cant wait to taste this.

I wouldn't be so quick to bottle it. It's never a good idea to follow the instructions to the letter as they are often very optimistic with the time it takes for things to happen. My usual rule of thumb is 10 and 10, I'd go with at least 7 and 7 (7 days primary, 7 days secondary). That way you know for a fact that the yeast is finished and they have time to clear up the brew in bulk, rather than in the bottle. Always makes for a cleaner brew.
