Default Ginger Ale (kegged)

Inspired by Yooper's recipe, I needed something for the teens to drink tonight. I had a 2.5 gallon keg sitting idle, so here it is:

2 gallons of water at 150F
2 cups grated ginger (juice and shreds were loosely packed)
4 cups turbinado sugar
2 limes, zest and juice
1 lemon, zest and juice

Stir everything together and let steep for until cool. I put the pot outside in 22F air for a couple of hours. Strain and carb.

This is a really good ginger ale! I found myself draining the keg all day yesterday. I hope there's enough for the kids.

The limes seem like a great addition! I'll have to try this!

I took your advice and kept adding ginger - I may go to 3 cups!

I also think a bit of brown sugar would give a nice flavor.

It would be worth a try - although I am personally not a fan of honey's aftertaste.

I will be doing another batch this weekend, but using 2 cups light brown sugar and 2 cups turbinado or raw sugar. I am trying to duplicate the caramel flavors of Bundaburg (ginger beer from down-under): It's awesome!

Replace 2 cups of the turbinado with brown sugar... Just made another batch and it's better!
