Default First time brewing alcoholic ginger beer.

Brewing ginger beer for the first time.

I've two 5l demijohns on the go.

basic recipe.

3 lemons per 5l
2 cups of ginger per 5l
champagne yeast
half packet of sugar (slightly less than pint)

so....

10 days in still fizzing, lemon sediment has come to top and ginger at bottom.

I siphoned out a glass to see how its going. So far very, very sweet and far too much lemon. It also has a very lemony taste not vinegary but a lil sour kind of?

Not sure if should decant remove sediment and add more fresh ginger?

this is the beer beer part of the forum, ginger beer doesn't really fit into any of the categories but there have been lengthy discussions in the soda forum
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f95/

i'm sure you will get more interest over there or on the wine forum. but you might have to clarify what a cup of ginger is
