Some simple ingredients, a few items from around the kitchen and within 2-3 weeks you can have your own DIY probiotic ginger beer.
Step 1: Starting the Ginger Bug
Add 2 teaspoons of freshly grated ginger root (skin and all)
Stir in 2 teaspoons of evaporated cane sugar, tighten lid and shake.
Cover* and Store in a warm place, add 2 teaspoons of cane sugar and ginger root each day. In 2-7 days, when it starts bubbling, it is active and ready for the next step.
Use right away for best results.
* I use a coffee filter and rubber-band to cover the pint jar.
