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.

  Kefir grains are very sustainable and economical. With gentle care, these grains can be recycled endless times.
