Just found this thread - for a couple of years I have made ginger wine using locally-obtained
grape must which is cheap and not great quality (used for making commercial mass-produced grape

Oo, this process is very similar to what I do - maybe this is one of the sites I followed:
they don't add lemon, which I would advise...

Sounds cool. My Father loves ginger ale, I've been thinking about making some for him. What I
don't understand is how it's non alcoholic. Do you boil off the alcohol after it's done

I would also be interested to hear how it turns out. My first brewing experiment involved bread
yeast (I think I used the fresh stuff, not instant) and I just don't think it attenuated very
