Ginger Ale
Ingredients (for 1 gallon+):

1 gallon water (for ale)
2 cups water (for making extract)
2 ounces fresh ginger root
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon yeast

Slice the ginger into thin sections and add them to two cups of
boiling water. Simmer this on very low heat for 20 minutes.
While this is simmering, boil the gallon of water and two cups
of sugar for one minute and set aside. Pour the pan with the ginger
into a blender and blend on high for about one minute. Strain
this extract into the sugar water. With a soup ladle, pour a
few cups of the hot brew through the pulp to extract a bit more
of the ginger flavor. Cool to room temperature. When cool, add
vanilla. Add yeast, stir and let sit for about 30 minutes. Then
bottle and age.

Notes: I recommend that you do not alter the recipe on the
first batch. On subsequent batches you can alter the amount of
ginger, sugar and vanilla to suit your own taste.
