Honey Beer


4 quarts water 4 oz. clear honey 1 oz. ground ginger Juice of 3 lemons

1 lb. white sugar Yeast

2 oz. lime juice


Boil two quarts of water with the ginger for half an hour. Put in a pan with the sugar, lime juice, honey, lemon juice and the remaining two quarts of water (cold). When just at blood heat, i.e. when you can bear your finger in it comfortably, add the yeast, a general-purpose wine yeast or a level teaspoonful of granulated yeast. Let it remain, closely covered, in a warm place for 24 hours, then strain through muslin. Allow to settle for an hour or two, then bottle, but use strong bottles and keep an eye on the corks!
