8. Honey Ginger IPA. Gravity: 1065; color: pale amber.
Ginger was a popular ingredient in British beers prior to 1850, and here were pairing it with a dab of honey. Start with an IPA, and brew and ferment as normal. Once transferred to the secondary, add 2 pounds of honey, plus 2 ounces of candied ginger, chopped coarsely. This is a higher quality ginger than the stuff in the produce section, at once less pungent and less earthy. I would use British East Kent Goldings exclusively.
