That sounds like an awesome plan Jeri! I think I will just use 1 bean then, but I have read

Sounds like a plan! I think I'll add close to 3 more lbs of honey today, with some

Hey guys, when is it too late to add honey to bump up the abv? I would prefer a semi-sweet to

I agree with you 100%, I guess I am just calling it ginger beer for lack of better words. I
