Ginger Ale #3.1

I brought pre-mixed ginger and herbs to North Carolina to whip up a batch of ginger ale while visiting my brother's family. Just had to add water, sugar, and yeast. I used the bread yeast that was on hand, and in a 70-degree kitchen, it was fully bubbly in two and a half days. Also tried bottle caps on some twist-off bottles, and that seems to have worked fine. An easy New Year's treat.


  1. What were the ingredients? Was it easy? I am very interested in trying homemade ginger ale/beer.

  2. It is pretty easy. There are a bunch of recipes in other posts and I'm going to do a post about general instructions and equipment shortly.
