Ginger beer is easy: Peel and grate 1 tbsp of fresh ginger root Boil 1 cup of water, add 1/2 cup of sugar and ginger root. Remove from heat and add 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice. Let ginger/sugar/lemon water cool to room temp and stir in 1 packet of yeast. Add the mixture to a 1/2 gallon bottle of bottled water (or better to split between 2 quart bottles). Cap tightly. Let it sit for 2 days minimum. Pour carefully, so that you do not get sediment, into a glass. Enjoy! via How is boat beer made? - SailNet Community.
