    i never get sulfur smells or tastes with gbpit seems a bit odd to me to only give the gbp 1
    hour to do its thing, most people give it a day or two, this obviously has nothing to do with
    the sulfur but...

    I've been experimenting with making multiple micro batches (2000ml ~ 4 bottle) of Ginger beer
    using GBP. Anyway, I've got down to a drinkable recipe that's actually refreshing and
    drinkable, but I'm s...

    Just adding some simple suggestions other have made : Switch to table sugar, I made the mistake
    of using brown sugar. It will be clearer and the taste wont be as offensive. As for the sulfur,
    it could...

    Hey, I've been experimenting for a few weeks with ginger beer plant in making ginger beer. I've
    been making small batches (~2000ml) batches and have been going through a lot of fresh ginger.
    I'm wonde...

    weird...yeah sprechners are force carb only. The only 2 natural carbonation ones are gnomes and
    some retro looking brand. For yeast, honestly I've been using red star cooking yeast. The root

    looks like it only needed 2 weeks. First successful beer/attempt at it. We just bottled
    another one today, have another one in a secondary, and we're almost done with the wine. :mug:

    meh,The person I'm working with seems to think 2 weeks is the magic number on bottling. It's
    getting to the point where there's no use in arguing about it. We're almost at the two week
    mark and you ca...

    Sorry guys, I haven't really contributed yet but have managed to have run into a lot of
    questions. Anyway, I've noticed a-uh-deadly smell coming out of the air lock. Like straight up
    FUNK, and not the...

    ... give it time. I alwys have to open a bottle after five days. I'm consistently disappointed,
    but I know it's going to get better. If it just lacks carbonation, my bet is you are right on
    track. (I'...

    Give it another two weeks. Sometimes those carb drops take a little bit to dissolve. Also, try
    to keep it about 68 to get those tired, lazy yeasts back to work. One week is not enough time
    to carb pro...
