1 Lb. ginger- chopped
1/2 c. lemon juice
1/2 c. orange juice
4 c. sugar
2 1/2 GAL water, divided
*Chop ginger, put in extra large pot.
*Add the juices, sugar, & 1 gal water. Simmer several hours.
*Strain out ginger and add enough water to make 10 quarts.
*Mix together 1/4 tsp. yeast and 1/2 c. water and add to mixture
*Fill bottles with a small funnel. Don't fill the whole way to the top. The recipe makes about 19 bottles (16 oz bottles).
*Leave them set out for 2 days, then refrigerate. They are ready to drink at this point. Make sure you keep them refrigerated after the 2 days, to stop the 'brewing' process.
It's very fizzy, watch out when you go to open one!!! The bottles came from a home brew store up this way. Next to try is Root beer, look out!
