I took this recipe from HBT. I thought maybe its some sort of braggot??
Also the recipe says i need to add enough water to get a boil of 6.42gal?? That seems a little extra only because is there a possibility of that much water being burned off??? This is a five gallon boil.

What are your goals with the ginger beer?

I've made 3 beers with ginger so far, each with 2-3 ounces fresh grated ginger root, half at 15 min & half at knock out. I really like the "moderately string ginger smell with hint of ginger flavor."
8 ounces might be a ginger hammer, which might be your goal
