ethalfrida July 1, 2015 Share July 1, 2015 I have become addicted to making homemade sodas totally from scratch, ginger ale to be more specific. With the recipes that are used there are no reasons to add forced carbonation. All you need is fresh organic ginger, sugar and spring or distilled water to make what is called a "ginger bug". That is similar to making a starter for bread. Since it is warm right now I made some hibiscus/rose hips ginger ale on Sunday, bottled yesterday and it is ready today. When I opened the bottle, I had to strt drinking immediately because it had enought fizz to shoot out of the top. But that is because it was only one day old. Any longer than that and a bowl and bag has to be used... (set bottle in bowl, cover and grasp top with with plastic bag, open slowly). The bowl makes sure you can recoup what spills out and the plastic bag keeps it from shooting to the ceiling which happened the second time I made it. There are also recipes for ginger beer which is strong and lovely if you like ginger. Anyone else doing any home healthy brewing? 1 Link to comment
