Ginger Beer Plant

1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon dried yeast in a jar
1 cup warm water

1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

4 cups sugar
6 cups water over medium heat

18 cups water
1/2 cup lemon juice
liquid from strained ginger plant

Put 1/2 a teaspoon each of sugar, ground ginger, and dried yeast
in a jar Mix in 1 cup of warm water Feed this ginger plant with
1/2 a teaspoon each of sugar and ground ginger every day for a
week, Keep covered with a cloth. (you can keep it on a kitchen
windowsill.) After a week strain liquid and reserve sediment. In
a large pot dissolve 4 cups of sugar in 6 cups of water over medium
heat When sugar is dissolved remove from heat Put in another 18
cups of water, 1/2 cup lemon juice and the liquid from strained
ginger plant Mix well and bottle. Divide the sediment from the
Ginger plant between 2 jars Add 1 cup of warm water to each jar
Commence feeding your 2 plants as before. In the original recipe
it said it was OK to drink after 5 days, but it is a lot better if
left at least 2-3 weeks or even longer.

The ginger plant seems to enhance its ginger flavour with age, the
more times you use it the better it gets. I don't make a batch up
each week I sometimes just throw out the liquid and 1/2 the ginger
plant if I don't need it and keep it going for next time
