If you want the recipe and technique for making it I can post it.

I make about 10 pints a week, and it has a huge ginger hit. Lovely. I bottle it into old Grolsch bottles and I have to tie a tag to the lid to find it. They often blow when I pop the lid and it detaches from the bottle and goes about 20 ft. I have to do it over the grass so when the top lands the porcelein lid does not fracture.

Th stuff tastes wicked.

I will look at my local Lidl at a pound it is worth the money as making it is a faff having to sterilise the bottles with Milton. Takes a couple of hours effort to make and 2 hours wage would probably buy the same amount of ginger beer.:roll:

Sure post it, the recipe I've been using recently tastes more lemony and yeasty than I'd like. Prefer it to taste good and hot.

[SIZE="3"]Wonderful idea - I would really appreciate the recipe too please.:thumbsup:[/SIZE]

BTW, for all of you folks who are planning on taking up this LIDL offer, please read the small print on the back of the bottle, you may be surprised to discover that it is made with artificial sweeteners. Personally, I wouldn't drink it if they were giving it away.

...same here, love ginger beer, and alcoholic drinks, but thought the taste was very disappointing. Not that gingery (if there's such a word!).

It is best to sterilise any equipment you use. Alternatively wash in hot water or use your dishwasher. When you need to scoop out the ginger bundle or handle the bowls etc in any of the recipes give your hands a good wash before and afterwards. If at any point you see mould or anything other than frothyness on the top or around your bowl or liquid please discard it, clean or sterilise and start again. You will see yeast growth but it should be pale in colour not green or black etc.

Children’s Ginger beer
Take an average size ginger root, peel, chop and bash with a rolling pin or whatever (kids love this. Try to retain any juice that is produced). Place in a bowl big enough to take the ginger and a pint of water. Pour over a pint of boiling water. Dissolve a tablespoon of sugar in to the liquid. Allow to cool to about tepid or room temp. Add a teaspoon of baking or brewers yeast and cover with a clean plate or damp tea towel. Over the next week add one teaspoon of sugar to the bowl per day and stir to dissolve. After seven days dissolve one pound of sugar into one gallon of warm water and strain the liquid from your bowl and mix into the gallon of water and sugar. Bottle into either grolch fliptop bottles or good screw top fizzy drinks bottles. Leave in a warm place for about a week to ten days. Keep checking them especially if you have used plastic bottles. What you want is for some pressure to build up in the bottle but not too much. Once the pressure has built up to the same as a bottle would be when bought from the shop, move them to somewhere cooler or refrigerate. Open very carefully and drink. Best server ice cold. With the glass bottles it is harder to tell if the pressure is right so I set aside two bottles and test one at seven days, if not enough pressure I test the other at ten days. These two bottled can be closed up and left for an extra couple of days and the pressure should build back up.

Adult Ginger Beer 4-6% AVB
One quartered lemon: two pounds of sugar of your choice: Two gallons of water: Two to three average size Ginger roots: Yeast (Bakers or Brewers)
Chop two to three average size ginger roots in to thin strips. Place in a pan with enough water to cover the ginger. Bring to boil and simmer for 15 - 20mins. Strain the liquid through muslin or other clean cloth (could be a tea towel) into a bucket or container that will hold at least 2 gallons. Top up with water warm enough to dissolve sugar to make around two gallons. You could use boiling water here which will dissolve the sugar quicker but you will need to wait longer for the liquid to cool enough for the yeast to be added. Dissolve two pounds of sugar. Add a quartered lemon. Place the ginger you strained earlier in a muslin bag, clean sock or cloth and place in to the liquid (basically what you want the ginger in the liquid but you don't want it in your bottles later on. I have some muslin bags which I put the ginger in, tie off and then double over and tie again). Allow this liquid to cool to around room temp 18-22% ish then add either a dessert spoon of bakers yeast or brewers yeast as directed usually two heaped teaspoons. Cover the bucket or whatever you are using with a damp cloth, after about a day you should see and hear lots of tiny bubbles rising to the surface which means you are forming alcohol. After two days scoop out your ginger bundle, squeeze out any liquid into your brew and discard the ginger. Allow to ferment in a warm place for about ten days. Now gather enough bottles as above to take your brew. Add one teaspoon of sugar to each bottle and fill with your brew. Store in a warm place for ten days refrigerate, open carefully and drink.

N.B. These recipes’ are for guidance you may prefer more or less ginger or more or less sugar especially in the children’s one but you will have to experiment. Rule of thumb, if it smells of ginger it should taste gingery so if your liquid does not smell of ginger add some more. Remember though that if you reduce the sugar in the adult one you will reduce the potential for alcohol production which may suite you anyway. The main thing is that it suites YOUR tastes. For best results with the Adult recipe buy yourself a brewer’s hydrometer and bring the specific gravity up to around 1.050 by gradually dissolving sugar and ferment to 1.010 which will give you about 5.2% ABV. Adjust your initial and final hydrometer readings to adjust sweetness and alcohol content.

£1.99 in my Lidl as well though it has sold out.

Alcoholic Ginger Beer
Equipment:-
• A jar and lid which is big enough to contain the plant
• One pint-sized measuring jug
• Several clean & dry two litre plastic bottles
• Teaspoons
• A large pan
• A fine cloth for straining
Ingredients:-
• Dried ginger
• Dried yeast
• Sugar
• Juice of four lemons
• Water
Making the Plant
1. In the jar place one teaspoon of dried yeast, two teaspoons of dried ginger, four teaspoons of sugar and a pint of cold water.
2. Stir and keep at room temperature.
3. Feed the plant every day with two teaspoons of dried ginger and four teaspoons of sugar. Stir after feeding
4. The plant will be ready in one week

Making the Ginger Beer
1. Place 1kg. (2lb) of sugar and two pints of boiling water in the large pan. The sugar will dissolve.
2. Add the juice of the four lemons.
3. Strain the contents of the jar through the cloth into the pan.
4. Add 14 pints of room temperature water.
5. Stir and bottle. Fill the bottles about seven eighths full as you need to allow for expansion. Squeeze the air out of the bottles to stop them exploding under pressure from the contents.
6. Store the bottles in a safe place at room temperature, and leave for three to four weeks to brew.
7. Discard half the solid from the plant or give it to someone so they may start their own. Place the remaining half in a clean jar with a pint of water and continue to feed as above.
