I've been thinking about trying to make a ginger beer. I'm trying to find a recipe that is basically a refreshing clean beer with a nice blast of ginger.
For comparison purposes, I had Phillips ginger beer (http://phillipsbeer.com) once this summer and couldn't find it again but I loved it. There's another one that's in stock (called Crabbie's, I think) which i was not a fan of (tasted like it was sweetened a bit, kind of like a malty ginger ale pop/soda). I'm just not personally a fan of a sweet beer.
I guess I'm just wondering if this recipe is closer to the Crabbie's sweet(ish) ginger beer than to a regular beer with a nice hit of ginger flavour. My initial reaction is to think that with the extra honey in there that it would come out a bit on the noticeably sweet side, but I don't know enough about this whole process yet to know.
Thanks for any opinions/insight!
Edited to say, wait a minute, honey would just add more fermentable sugar, right?
