 Ingredients List

  • 2 ga Boiling water, 256 oz.
  • 2 Lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 ts Cream of tartar
  • 2 lb Sugar, granulated
  • 2 oz Ginger, chopped
  • 1/2 ts Yeast


Boil the water in a stainless steel or enamel pot. Add all remaining
ingredients except the yeast. Simmer 20 minutes. Cool to lukewarm and
taste. Add more ginger for a livelier flavour. Dissolve yeast in one cup of
the mixture and stir back in. Cover and allow to ferment 34-36 hours at
65-70F, i.e. mix it in the morning and bottle the next evening. When a
slight white skin of foam appears on the top of the brew it is ready to
bottle. Siphon or pour into sterlized bottles removing any lemon slices.
After capping age the bottles upright for one week at 60-65F then store in
the refrigerator or basement cool room below 60F. NB: This cool storage is
very important.
