This was based on a ginger beer recipe from Papazian's book. It was tasty after just one week in the bottle. This is a light beer with a nice ginger aroma and flavor.



Start yeast. Boil malt extract, honey, boiling hops and boiling ginger for about 1 hour. Strain. Add finishing hops and ginger. Cool rapidly in tub. Pitch started yeast. Ferment. Prime and bottle.
