I just love ginger beer, now I get to refine my process and taste accordingly. 8 years ago

Well, my bottles became violently unstable and explosive. Pushing the bottoms of the plastic soda bottles out, and arching the lids… So this afternoon we are going to carefully take them out to the lawn and throw stones at them to make them explode.
(One exploded the other day…)...
Note to self : Degass them every other day…. 8 years ago
Today was bottling day… So how did it go??
Well, I had a big stainless steel bowl which could only hold the 24 of 28 cups of water, so we were a little down in number to start with… Then I couldnt find any muslin in the house so I used a bandana (hey, bandanas are multipurpose), but that turned out to be my fiancee’s instead of mine.. And the difference being I had de-dyed mine and she hadnt, but I didnt see any pinkish/red colouring go through as I didnt squeeze out the plant…
But, now I have 12 soda bottles full of ginger beer mk I cooling in the basement for two weeks…
I will report back with the taste test… 8 years ago
Well, its going well. Its been 4 or 5 days now, and I have my ginger beer plant sitting on the windowsill, slowly starting the fermentation process. Tomorow I start to add the daily dose of sugar + ginger…
In a week I will have it ready to start bottling!!

Ive got an old recipie from my Nan for making a ginger beer plant, so now all I need to do is collect enough bottles to store it all in later on.
I am going to try and collect as many water/7-up plastic bottles as I can get… Once I have that I can start work on the plant.. No point in having a plant all set to bottle and nothing to store it all in so… 8 years ago
