Yeast for baking bread is fine. Instant yeast will work too.
Update #3. I won a runner-up prize in the Homebrew 2016 competition with this Instructable! Thanks for all the views, the comments and everybody who voted!
I'm starting a batch of ginger beer this weekend. I will do the boiling thing this time. I'm planning on doing another Instructable based on this one (or edit this one), so something else you can make for summer. Oh, and I received a big bag of passion fruit. I'll be making a smaller batch of passion fruit beer too ... lets see how that turns out.

Thank You for Smoking: an Introduction to an American Classic
Very good Instructable. I like the science explanations. As a South African I'm not used to smoking stuff, we just like to "braai" our meat on hot coals or use a Weber to roast it. But watching the Food Network made it apparent that Americans like to smoke everything. Something I will definitely try.
Hi everyone, quick update #2. Yesterday was (a very messy) bottling day. I updated the relevant step with photos. The spigot eventually clogged up, but I got a siphon just in case. Everything look and taste really good.
Glad you enjoyed it! Now go forth and make it. It is really delicious.
Somebody else mentioned tepache as well. I will try it. The addition of spices sounds delicious.
I don't know yet! As far as I can determine the pineapple mush collected below the spigot (some parts moved to the top). But I'm getting a siphon just in case.
Hi everyone, just a quick update. Today is Day 4 so we are halfway through the fermentation phase. Things are merrily bubbling away and it smells awesome. I am a bit concerned about the temperature, after all it is winter down here in South Africa. But as long as the yeast don't go into hibernation I'm happy.
Thanks AdrianaG, I forgot to mention that. Yes, the yeast needs heat to do their thing, so putting your brew in the fridge will stop the process.
Not yet, but I will publish it. Previous batches had a serious buzz.
Thanks! That is some serious alcohol for a beer! ? I'm keeping notes of everybody's comments and advice. Someday I will publish The Ulimate Pineapple Beer Recipe!
I actually like the yeasty flavour when using bakers yeast :-) With this Instructable I wanted to give a recipe using stuff you already have in your larder. Yeah, the plastics thing. I assume as long as you use food grade plastics you should be fine ... ?The balloon idea is brilliant if you are not going to use a air lock.Thanks for the feedback!
To date I have not killed myself or anybody else who drank my brew. ? Nor have I killed the little yeast guys who make my brew. So I guess the water choice and temperature is up to the brewer. Thanks for the input.
Yes, I strain it through cheese cloth or dish cloth from the fermenter to another container. It gets rid of the fruit pulp. The brew will stay murky though.
This is so cool! Definitely going to make it!
