place pulp in micro mesh bag and squeeze out excess juice
add sugar and shake vigorously to dissolve

Fg Very Low 990 Ish Very Dry , Will Probobly Sweeten , Cask Conditioning At The Mo As It Tasted Very Vinegary After The Fermentation

Default Ginger fear revisited


I really want to make a version of this. I have a huge supply of pears and carrots and fresh ginger is quite cheap right now. I juiced up some pears and carrots and found they are great combined.

I plan on making up a 24l batch with the primary ingredients being:

16l pear juice
8l carrot juice
Champagne yeast
Light brown sugar - not sure how much yet
Yeast nutrient
Pectin enzyme of some sort
and finally fresh ginger juice

I want this to be sparkling and have a real bite. About 7-8% ABV would be fine.

Any ideas or thoughts on how much ginger to add? I bought 2kg but I think that may be generous. But I do want to have a good ginger burn. I will probably extract the juice from the ginger roots becasue I have an old school juicer that will do the trick.
