This beer is a beer for ginger lovers! Â If you like old fashion ginger soda, then you’ll love this beer. Â When I had convinced my parents to come for Thanksgiving this year, I wanted to make sure I had a special beer for my mom. Â As I was looking through brew talk recipes I found this ginger one and it had mixed reviews. Â This seems to be the general view on ginger, you either like it or you don’t. Â Mom loves ginger.
The recipe called for a ridiculous amount of fresh chopped ginger. Â I ended up going with a bit less but still put 8oz into a 1 gallon batch! Upon tasting the final product, I would cut this in half and end up with an even better beer. Â As for this batch, it has great aromatics (Hallertauer hops, lemon, ginger), a nice light bubbly middle and some heat at the end. Â A great beer to have as a digestif!
