Recently i tried Left Hand Brewery's ginger beer........I loved it. I can only brew extract and steeped grains at this time, so please not too complex a recipe!

From what little I know about using ginger, that should be 2.5oz. Papazian says you should use fresh, grated ginger. He says 1oz will add considerable character, but that he's used as much a 4oz in a batch.

The 40oz was NOT a typo. Keep reading into the thread. Fresh grated ginger has a some heat and some more subtle gingery flavors. Boiling the ginger which this guy did, removes the heat but leaves the subtler flavors.
