I made this a few days ago, and unfortunately my wife isn't a big fan (too gingery). I think it's great, but perhaps I'll cut the ginger in half next time.

FWIW, my wife doesn't like it either.

I also found out that all ginger is not created equal! I made another batch, and the ginger I purchased was less yellow, more mild, and not as much juice (older possibly?). It's much more mild.

My wife likes the ginger ale and isn't really a big ginger fan... so maybe mine wasn't all that strong. It has lots of zest flavor to it.

As an interesting side note, I only have one tap on my tower and connect the beer line to either ginger ale or beer depending on what I want dispensed. The first bit of ginger ale always has beer and vice versa, which got me to drinking shandies. If you haven't already, mix a bit of your fresh ginger ale with a pint of dark beer for a mighty fine beverage (black lager in my case).

Wow! This is the first time I have used this forum for soda and the first recipe is exactly what I am looking for, a ginger ale. What would you compare this recipe to? Please give a comparison that I could easily find. I used to drink Old Tyme ginger beer when I was a kid and that is what I am looking to emulate- ginger to the point of spiciness.

This recipe should suit you!

Replace the Turbinado with dark brown sugar (my newest batch does this). The brown sugar makes it similar to Bundaburg, but spicier.

Let me know how it works for you.

Glad to help!

Credit where credit is due: Yooper and Paisano's posts led to mine. Yooper's recipe and Paisano's brown sugar make this so good that I have given 25% of my keezer capacity to ginger ale!

I need a bigger keezer

I will give this a try. Ginger Ale is my all time favorite soft drink. Thanks to Yooper and r2eng.

I've heard that rootbeer will taint a keg with rootbeer flavor permanently.. I love me some Ginger ale, but don't want to taint my 3 gal kegs. Will this Ginger ale leave a flavor in my kegs?

Another question: if I carb this up at 30 or so psi, do I need a different beer line length because of the high psi? I use cobra taps & have 5 & 10' lengths. Does it matter which one to use?
