Does it fizzle like soda?
How close does it come to tasting like Ginger ale?
Is that regular bakers yeast or a type of brewers yeast?!
Thanks, sorry for all of the questions!!!! 🙂

I'm having a problem with my ginger ale. I made this recipe the second time, the first time being perfect, no problems. It's a really good recipe. This second time, tastes absolutely delicious, but it has the rotten smell/iron smell of protein. Do you know how, #1, if there's a way to fix this, or #2 most importantly, how this could have happened? I followed the steps exactly, the only difference being I've used lemon juice instead of squeezing a lemon, but I did this the first time and it came out as flawlessly. I did it pretty much exactly, the only thing I can imagine being a problem was not cooking the ginger long enough in the sauce, but I'm not sure. Just want to know if there's probable cause to an iron/rotten meat smell. Thanks and cheers to this delicious recipe.

Can't you just pour in carbonated water instead of normal water into the syrup?

I’ve seen comments asking about alcohol content, and I’m unsure because I don’t want any alcohol, if I leave the yeast for 5 days, I will only get a tiny bit?


Jan 1, 2019, 4:31 am Reply

Would you be able to add carbonated water to the syrup??


Jan 1, 2019, 6:44 pm Reply

The amount of sugar 🤢


Jan 1, 2019, 2:42 am Reply

Is the purpose of the yeast making carbonated water? If you have a carbonator machine, can you just use that instead?

As we know any process of fermentation produces a trace amount of alcohol …and my question is:
can we determine this percentage in this recipe?
Another question
What is the appropriate amount of ginger bug for liter of juice or water?
Thank you

Can we make it without sugar?


Apr 4, 2019, 8:41 pm Reply

Why yeast!


May 5, 2019, 6:45 am Reply

If I decide to leave it to ferment for 5 days or longer to get a higher alcohol content, do I squeeze the air out of it whenever it looks full to prevent it from exploding? Also what's the longest I can leave it to ferment for the highest possible alcohol content without being silly?

I have made it yesterday night (7 june 2019), there is some precipitation in the bottle, also do I have to squeeze the bottle now or after 2 days? Please tell me what is that precipitation and is it normal to have it?

Would it be possible to use brewer's yeast? If yes, should I use about double the amount of active yeast?
