Servings: 4 people

Ingredients

  • 4 inches ginger juiced
  • 1-2 lemons juiced
  • 2 quarts water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup active ginger bug

Instructions

  • Juice the ginger WITH the skin on if it is organic!
  • Add everything together, and taste-test.
  • Pour into bottles and let ferment 1-7 days until sufficiently bubbly. It may take longer if your house is colder, but please do check daily. You don't want exploding jars!

Notes

Prior to putting in jars to ferment: If you think the ginger is too strong, add more water. If you'd like it stronger, juice a bit more ginger. Keep in mind it tends to taste stronger after fermentation! Maybe because of all the bubbles? :)
Swing-Top Jars: I highly recommend swing-top jars because they lead to a fizzier product. Plus it's easy to make then just grab one from the fridge, which encourages having fermented drinks more often. Click here to buy my favorite type on Amazon. The 8oz jars are great for kids!
