Ginger Beer pack offers the home brewer the opportunity to make Sparkling ginger beer which is naturally fermented but with the minimum of alcohol.
Recommended equipment: The ginger beer pack should be fermented for 24 to 48 hours (the warmer the temp, the faster it will ferment) in a standard brewing fermenter fitted with an airlock.
So the Ginger Beer can safely be bottled at SG 1010 or if the reading remains higher, but constant for several days when all apparent bubbling through the airlock has ceased.

Most people are familiar with non-alcoholic ginger ale--like root beer, birch beer and sarsaparilla, a by-product of the late 19th-century American temperance movement.
In fact, the emphasis on their herbal component (the term "gruit" had long fallen out of use) was so strong that malt content and quality was neglected in favor of cheaper short-cuts.
As a result, most surviving recipes for alcoholic "Ginger Beer" rely primarily on versions of cane sugar for their fermentable content.

We refrigerate our ginger beer so that the yeast don't multiply so much that they run out of food, and thus produce alcohol instead of carbon dioxide.
Cap the jug tightly and put it into the refrigerator (this is to slow the activity of the yeast down; if you didn't you might produce alcohol which would give the ginger beer an unpleasant taste).
You can flavour your ginger beer in many different ways by adding fresh, chopped mint leaves when you put the ginger in or using honey to replace the sugar.
