Not sure how much 1.5oz is, but I just made a 1 gallon batch with 3 Tbsp of sliced/grated ginger. It's still fermenting, so I can't tell you how good it is yet, but I'll let you know :)

Yeah, I want to avoid chemical methods. Do you think that pasteurizing inside of the wine bottles is a bad idea? Or that I should do it in bulk (in the 1 gallon container?)?
