Default Molasses Beer

I dare you to make this:

http://www.harvestfields.ca/CookBooks/001/05/04/011.htm

MOLASSES BEER
To six quarts of water, add two quarts of West India molasses; half a pint of the best brewer's yeast; two table-spoonfuls of ground ginger; and one table-spoonful of cream of tartar. Stir all together. Let it stand twelve hours, and then bottle it, putting three or four raisins into each bottle.
It will be much improved by substituting the juice and grated peel of a large lemon, for one of the spoonfuls of ginger.
Molasses beer keeps good but two or three days.

I have recently started playing around with old-style root beers, the recipes are very similar to this one.

What, no rat?

A half pint of yeast in two gallons, that krausen is going to jump out at you.
