Fermented ginger beer is easy to make at home if you follow these simple instructions. Homemade ginger beer is refreshingly probiotic and delicious!




  1. Mix all the ingredients in a glass jar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Cover with a piece of cloth or coffee filter held in place with a rubber band or metal ring. Place somewhere warm and dark to ferment for 3 days. (Stir each day).
  3. Once you have bubbles forming at the top, strain the mixture and bottle it. Allow it to ferment for a further 3 to 5 days to build up the carbonation (make sure your bottle can handle the carbonation).
  4. Once it’s fizzy, taste your ginger beer and decide whether you want to add more sweetener. Store in the refrigerator and consume within a few weeks.
