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!
