Beer Style: Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
My long-term taste bud memory says this was brown, bitter, and slightly sweet with a great ginger flavor and tingle at the back of the throat as it went down. It was overcarbonated (7/8 cup of priming sugar is too much!) I wish I could tell you how much ginger I used, but I remember I wished it were more. Go for it! I've found nothing better to drink with Chinese food.
Add crushed grains to 2 gallons cold water. When mixture begins to boil, remove grains. Boil 1 hour with malt extracts, ginger and Cascade hops. Turn off heat, add Fuggles and steep five minutes. Strain into primary, add water to bring to 5 gallons and ferment 3 days. Rack to secondary. Prime and bottle.
