thanks
well I made a sharp tasting ginger ale I don't know if it's what you want but
I took a piece of fresh ginger root threw it in a food processor and turned it into a pulp
I'll apologize for the measurements now cause most things I don't measure
about a half cup of the ginger pulp
1 cup of corn syrup
1 cup of sugar
half teaspoon of citric acid ( I used a tablespoon the first time and my tongue was not happy)
2 cups water

put it all in a pot and simmer til it thickens (about an hour)

next I used a 2 liter bottle and filled it 3/4 full with water then I added the syrup (not all of it) until I was satisfied with the taste

and finally I force carbed it with the homemade carb cap and about 50 psi
shook it up added more carb at 50 psi put it in the fridge for a few hours then gave it another shot of co2 (@ 50 psi) then let it sit over night
next day poured a glass good taste good carb
