TRH Roy's Home brew Ginger Beer with a kick
18 litre water
100 g minced ginger
1 cup sultana raisins
90 g baking yeast (packets)
2 kg sugar
Start to mix 100 g sugar and 1 cup luke warm water and yeast in a tall glass.
Let stand about 10 min untill yeast activates and frothed to the top.
Dissolve 2 kg sugar in 18  litres of luke warm water.
Add raisins, ginger and activated yeast. Give it a good stir.
Close the top with a wine making bubbler or a cap with a hole in for gas to escape.
Let stand for 5 days at room temperature
More than 36 hours will give it a beer fermented taste with higher alcohol.
Strain ginger beer twice to remove raisins and sediment.
Fill glass bottles that can handle pressure with sealable tops, or use plastic Cola bottles.
Soft plastic bottles need the cap to be left on loose for gas to escape.
Refrigerate and enjoy.
Prepared, tried and tested by: Roy Crossman Snr.

  1. Oh gosh, I know a few people who would enjoy this beverage! Great recipe, Esme.

  2. I am going to have to try this – another great recipe!

  3. When does the ginger get added?

    • Thanks for pointing that I out. I have messaged Roy and once I hear back from him will respond to you. Sorry about that

    • The FB poster inadvertently omitted when to add the ginger, but have now updated it. You need to add it with the raisins and the yeast. Again sorry about this error. The blog recipe has been updated accordingly
