    You should use some of the sterilising solution in the air-lock water as well.

    So, I typed in 'speedos and ginger ale' into Google Image and what comes up but:



    I thought... that sneaky bloody Stoker, quality dropping recently just like his team, has been nicking pictures off of google! I wouldn't mind, but it's the bloody first pic too, lazy git.

    So, I clicked on the image to see where he nicked it from:

    https://teakdoor.com/the-teakdoor-lou...er-beer-2.html

    Devious fuker nicked it off of this very thread; he's one step ahead...
    How do I post these pictures???

    Fuck off Bettyboo you horrible [at][at][at][at].

    I've got serious doubts as to your ability to hack the finest ginger beer that has ever been brewed this side of the finest ginger beer brewery ever seen by mankind. I reckon one sniff of this rather fine urine coloured beverage will see you widdling in your stolen speedos and proclaiming an affinity to an Italian geezer.

    Your Eyetalian mates may well be in the market for dodgy beer and bottom of a ginger variety, but i can assure you that "withnalls finest ginger tinged alcoholic beverage with a kick like a bastard donkey booting a Rory throw in" would beat even the toughest Sicilian in a Sato taste alike competition.

    Rose wine is made easily in Thailand using very cheap ingredients, a small plastic bag, one of those big water dispensers they have in schools and offices ( don't remember capacity ) and an elastic band. It takes ten days.

    Of course, I have never done it myself because it is illegal. A fellow teacher made it and one had to see him before 5.00 pm after school if there was anything important to discuss as, any later, he and his wife were totally pissed.

    No need for all those pipes, traps and thingies.

    Talking of ginger beer, this is what a traditional ginger beer plant looks like. I am currently breeding it up

    A few notes:

    1. Agree to not wash off the steriliser (but cheaper alternatives available)
    2. Bucket doesn't need sealing as the gas given off is carbon dioxide which is heavier than air and forms a protective layer. Just a loose lid to keep rubbish out will suffice.
    3. Sodium Metabisulphate = camden tablets = cleaner/steriliser
    4. The 18 litre pressurised soft drink containers are called corneleous (sp) kegs (cornies for short) and are far the best option for carbonating beverages and storing them.
    5. the cheapest effective cleaner is that powder you can add to your wash to remove stubborn stains from clothes several brands available but start with Oxi....
    6. The cheapest effective steriliser (everything must be clean first) is Videne Antiseptic solution. Add 1.25ml into a litre of water. Sterilises on contact and no need to rinse. Can be obtained from chemists and is used in hospitals neat to sterilise wounds.

    I only brew wine as I get more bang for buck, I did try Turbo cider once and was happy with it but cider is cheap in the UK anyway. Turbo cider is just apple juice from normal supermarket cartons, throw a cup of strong black tea in it for the tannin, teaspoon of yeast, leave a week to ferment out and another week to clear if you don't like it cloudy. Pectolase removes a haze if you can source some, finings clear it quicker, otherwise wait, could take a month. Bottle into plastic (PET) fizzy pop bottles such as 1 ltre coke or pepsi. You need to add around 1-1.5 teaspoons of sugar per pint to give secondary fermentation in the bottle if you want it fizzy, couple of teaspoons of glycerine per 5 litres to give a smoother taste. This will produce a dry cider at around 5%, throw some sugar in at the start if you want rocket fuel. If you like a sweeter cider add Splenda or another artificial sweetener as these won't ferment out into alcohol. I added sugar to make it stronger then skipped the secondary fermentation and mixed with lemonade when serving to dilute it, sweeten it, and add some carbonation. It is drinkable as soon as it is bottled but improves over 6 months.

    An excellent site is The HomeBrew Forum • Index page

    Any thread started by withnallstoke will head in that direction by default.

    Smile

    Bits of additional info.

    The next brew i do, i will double the amount of fresh ginger to 1Kg, and use only half of the dried cinammon stick.
    Although i couldnt taste the cinammon whilst sampling (for scientific purposes) a bottle, the smell from the empty glass what of very strong cinammon.

    I saw quite a lot on the net about this, but have never actually seen it so could make no sense of it.
    Is it a decent strength in alcohol?



    The official tasting of the brew is this Friday when i will be joined by a member here who has promised to publish a report on his findings.
    It's still very much a learning curve, so cheers for all the input.

    Its for making traditional ginger beer that would be legally classified as non alcoholic. Its slow growing and quite sensitive to alcohol; but the fermentation flavours are very different to those you would get from yeasts. I suppose you could fortify it with a decent neutral spirt.

    The stuff itself looks like blended jelly. Its a symbiotic combination of a yeast and bacteria which have become interdependent on each other and cannot survive separately. Essentially the first stage of single cell organisms evolving into more complex multi cell creatures like the drinkers of this stuff. so not a drink for hard core creationists as they would have to deny its existence whilst they were drinking it.

    Part III - getting it down your neck.

    Last night, the official sampling of the demonic brew took place.
    Six bottles were chilled in the fridge, with the option of another fifteen in the beer cellar should the need arise.
    The first bottle was brought out carefully, the plastic singha water bottle bulging in odd places ready to explode if roughly handled. The white bottle top was turned anticlockwise and a very pleasing phhhhmmmtsss sound was heard, two glasses were poured, glasses were joined together in a toast to the Queen, and the sampling began.

    Mad Hatter took copious notes and pictures of the event, and has promised a write up as and when he recovers, so i'll leave it to him to flesh out the tasting details.

    For my part, i was dissapointed with the brew. The complexities i tried to induce into the brew had been replaced with a yeasty fragrance and an underlying taste of ............. bugger all. It hardly tasted of anything, the blandness of the brew overpowering everything else. Still, in the interest of science, the sampling was continued in order to see if one could actually get pissed on the stuff, and if so, what would the ensuing hangover be like.

    Five litres later i sort of came too, with the sound of Elvis Costello blasting out of the speakers - an act in itself that proves how drunk i was.
    The hangover has been sorted with two cups of coffee and two litres of water.
    The ginger beer will stay in storage for at least another month untill i try it again, and i have a week to come up with a new recipe in order to commence a brew next weekend.

    Any suggestions?
