These ingredients are for ONE bottle of approx. 1.5-1.75 litres
Therefore, multiply accordingly
You will need a quantity of thoroughly sterilised 2 litre P.E.T. bottles (reclaimed cola, or lemonade bottles, or suchlike)
BTW, the alcohol content should be around the 4% mark ( 2° proof)
¼ tsp brewer’s yeast
225g caster sugar
1½-2 tbsp finely grated fresh root ginger
Juice of 1 lemon
1 good tbsp honey
Firstly, thoroughly clean your bottle(s) with sterilising tablets (those ones for baby feeding utensils are good)
Add the yeast and the sugar to the bottle(s), using a funnel, then mix the grated ginger with the honey, and add that to the bottle.
Next, half fill the bottle(s) with water, put the cap(s) on and shake until all the sugar is dissolved.
Then, top up the bottle(s) to a level ¹NO MORE THAN 3/4 full. Cap the bottle tightly, and place in a carboard box somewhere warm and safe...like a cupboard etc for 48 hours. ¹There is a reason for this "warm and safe place"
After the 48 hours, release some of the pressure that has built up inside by CAREFULLY twisting the cap open, then reclosing them after all the activity has ceased. Put the bottle(s) in the fridge for several hours, to stop the yeast working.
Once its well chilled and ready for use, pass through a sieve and serve
¹Because there is LOTS of gas produced, the build up could mean that the bottles will explode. Therefore only fill each bottle to a maximum of 3/4 full, to allow for expansion, and place in a cupboard so that any "explosions" are contained somewhat. The secret lies in getting the temperature of the storage right. Too warm and there will be too much activity, but too cool and the yeast will struggle to do its job
Have fun !!!!!
