       Title: Home-Made Ginger Beer
  Categories: Polkadot, Faylen, Beverages, Brewing
       Yield: 1 Gallon
  
       2 oz Fresh ginger
       2    Lemons
       1 ts Cream of tartar
       1 lb Sugar
       1 ga Boiling water
       1 oz Yeast
  
   This home-brew remains a favourite party drink in a Welsh household
   for both adults and children.  You will need eight pint bottles or
   four quart bottles.  They should be of a strong material and have
   firm caps with metal springs to imprison the effervescent liquid -
   it’s more explosive than champagne.  Makes 1 gallon.
   
   Roughly crush the ginger root.  Wash and slice the lemons into thick
   rings. Put the ginger, lemon, cream of tartar and sugar in a large
   bowl. Pour the boiling water over.  Stir and leave to cool to blood
   temperature. Stir in the yeast.  Leave to ferment for 24 hours.  Skim
   off the yeast. Strain and bottle the liquid.  Leave for three days
   before broaching it.
