Lot 2: Ginger Beer--The Reckoning

On the same day as I pulled Lot 1, I pulled Lot 2 with the Ginger Beer. It came in right at 5% alcohol. I ended up with about 1.5 liters of ginger beer which filled 2/3 of 5 20 ounce (591ml) bottles.

0.591 liters * 2/3 full * 5 = 1.97157 liters. The jug I used was 1.89271liters, so it was probably a little less than 2/3.

After bottling them in the plastic bottles, I added another 1/4 teaspoon of champagne yeast and 4 tablespoons of sugar and squished the bottles to get the air out.

I sampled it and it was quite tasty! It should take about 2 or 3 days and they should be read to drink.
