1650 ml water
3 tbsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp fresh dry yeast
1 empty clean fizzy drink bottle 2l
200 g granulated sugar
100 ml water
4 tbsp fresh ginger coarsely grated

In a large bowl add the yeast & about 200ml of the water, mix the yeast in, best to leave for 10 mins to allow the yeast to soften, next is to add the cool syrup through a fine sieve to remove the bits.
Top up with the rest of the water & the lemon juice mix altogether.
IMPORTANT DO NOT FILL TO THE TOP OF THE BOTTLE, use a funnel to fill about 4 cm from the bottom of the screw top.
Leave bottles in a cool dark place, after 2 days loosen the cap to release some pressure, leave for another day then place in the fridge to reduce the fermentation, now ready to drink, drink with in 2 weeks.
Suggestion & Tips
Best left in a cool garage while fermenting in case of the bottle popping. In hot weather open the bottles every day to let pressure out.
