Screw on bottle tops loosely and brew 1 week before drinking.
Divide paste into two batches.
Give one away and to your half add all the ingredients in starter except yeast.
Feed with sugar and ginger as before and make another batch.

Have fun. Anita

The Ginger Brew recipe is from a children's cookbook. It has negligible alcohol content. It's just a carbonated drink for a beverage. However, you can also enjoy the benefits if ginger while drinking.
