      Title: Old-fashioned ginger beer
 Categories: Alcohol, Beverages, New (to be
      Yield: 1 Servings
 
           -----For The Starter-----
    1/2 oz Yeast
      2 ts Sugar
           --To Feed The "Plant"-----
      7 ts Ground Ginger
      7 ts Sugar
           -----To Flavour-----
  1 1/2 lb Sugar
           Juice Of 2 Lemons
 
  Mix starter ingredients with 3/4 pint of warm water in a glass jar.
  Stir, cover and leave in a warm place for 24 hours. This is your
  starter "plant".
  
  Feed the "plant" with 1 teaspoon each of ground ginger and sugar each
  day.
  
  After 7 days strain through a fine sieve.  Dissolve the sugar in 2
  pints of water.  Add the lemon juice and the liquid from the "plant".
  Dilute with 5 pints of water, mix well and store in corked bottles
  for at least 7 days.
  
  Use strong bottles as pressure may build up which will cause thin
  bottles to explode.  For the same reason use corked bottles rather
  than those with a more secure closure that will not 'give' under
  pressure.
  
  Ross requested a recipe for ginger beer.  This is a recipe that I have
  often used and it produces a really old-fashioned drink. It is quite
  a long process but well worth the effort. The amount of sugar in the
  final stage can be varied according to taste.  Please excuse the use
  of Imperial measures - I am only a poor ignorant pom.
