Fermented around 63-65 for the first week or so and then let it rise to 68.

Put in the "dry hop" today, used 4oz of ginger. While doing that, took a gravity/tasting sample. Gravity is at 1.014. It had a mild ginger aroma, some slightly gingery sweetness on the front and then a biscuity/wheaty flavor in the back. Interesting, but it's still young (2 weeks in primary) and uncarbonated. It certainly seemed like it would be a good brew with another week or so on it and bubbles.

I'm curious to see how much of the "oomph" comes from the dry "hop" ginger addition. I was hoping for something really In Your Face but I'm betting al ot of that is still to come
Any good?????

Curious if anyone has tried an all grain of this. Extract is so expensive.

Newb here with a question... i recently brewed the White House honey ale and SWMBO is a ginger fanatic! I added 4 oz fresh grated ginger in the last 10 of the boil. Bottled on 11/28. Took a taste to check carb(very early) and it seemed very peppery!! It definately hadnt aged long enough, but any thoughts on if i over did it with the ginger??

Does this taste more a beer, or ginger ale? I'm looking for more of a ginger ale recipe than an ale.

I made this recipe last year, unfortunately I was still too eager and drank most of the 5 gallons within 3 weeks of bottling. I was so unimpressed but I found a couple of bottles that escaped my initial drinking, they were so sweet, but not like ginger ale, it definitely tastes like beer but it's so sweet. In fact, I'm making it again.
