Ann is coming over for lunch this week and she likes when I make ginger ale. It's very satisfying, it only takes about ten minutes and then after two days, it's ready. For each liter, add 1/2 cup of sugar, one tablespoon of grated ginger, juice from 1/2 a lemon and 1/4 teaspoon of yeast. The yeast and sugar interact to create carbonation (you can kind of see it beginning to happen at the top of the bottle). Ford got these cool containers for me from a Swedish furniture store.


  1. Yes I do like it when you make ginger ale. Yes I do.

  2. I was just in NH. In the story of the cabin that was lying around the house, they told a story of making homemade ginger ale and how they would put it behind the stove. But that sometimes it would be forgotten/get too hot and explode. This story is a little late, isn't it?
