We made a BETTER Ginger Beer!

That’s right, we finally made a better ginger beer video! This time no need to pasteurize and it’s got a LOT of ginger flavor!

We get the question often of what is the difference between ginger beer and ginger ale. Ginger beer was originally an alcoholic brew made from fermenting ginger, sugar, and water, although most commercial ginger beers nowadays are non-alcoholic. Ginger ale is a non-alcoholic, sweetened, ginger-flavored soft drink. Ginger beer is stronger-tasting and spicier than ginger ale, but less carbonated. Additionally Ginger beer is a drink originating from England, where sugar, ginger, water, and sometimes lemon were fermented and brewed with a starter culture called the ginger beer plant, resulting in a brew with about 11 percent alcohol. This also explains how the word “beer” is part of the name.

So now that you are caught up with the history and nomenclature of ginger beer, let’s get to how to make it! This is our improved version for 2023. It takes out some additional processes for a simplified version of the classic beverage.
