Spicy Chilli Ginger Beer recipe

 

I like my ginger beer throaty with personality over lightly flavoured sugar water. But the good thing is that you don't really have to choose. You can make your ginger beer however you like it.

Pennies in a bag to keep away flies!

Anyone ferments knows the problems of fruit flies, they just love kombucha, kefir and fermenting vegetables. Covering your brew with a good tight weave cloth can help to keep the little critters out of your brew but how do you keep them away. Well.... It's crazy and we have absolutley no scientific evidence to back this up but we use this method and it works. That's all we can say. Place between 4 and 5 pennies in a bag of water (we like the zip lock bags as they are easier to seal but any clear plastic bag works). hang...
