think about it with mead you need to add yeast nutrient. honey is nearly all sugar and yeast need the extra goodies.

I think I have some yeast nutrient I can toss in. Sugar would be the only fermentable since it is a true ginger beer with no grain of any kind.

Or when you say "ginger beer", are you referring to soda pop? It is the forum right below this one.

How how of an ABV do you want? Are you going to ferment out all 7 pounds of sugar, or have it more like a ginger soda?

(Honey and sucrose are two different ballgames in fermentation- sucrose ferments very well without a problem. A little yeast nutrient won't hurt, but isn't necessary).

Please tell me it was a 5 gallon batch... Still, you might have been getting up into the wine range with that much sugar.

Well it's not really a soda pop since it'll have a significant amount of alcohol in it. Mostly it's an experiment to try to make a ginger beverage, be it considered a beer, cider, or soda.

I plan to ferment all 7lbs then back sweeten to taste. Mostly trying to figure if it is worth the cost to buy corn sugar or if table sugar will work ok without tasting horrible.
