Ginger Beer

My dad taught me how to make this fabulous new concoction: Ginger Beer! (<1% alcohol)

My sister is already going through a 10-step to break the habit.

I didn't actually make the batch in the photo, but I did make "Sara's Immunity Tonic" (I just named it) with carrot, apple, ginger, and lemon and lightly sweetened with agave. It's light and bubbly and kind of amazing.

My dad makes his with his ancient yeast, but I just used bread yeast to be sure I could duplicate it at home. Poor D, he's going to have to deal with a little brewery in the kitchen now... trust me, it will be worth it.
