1 oz. fresh ginger root
4 tablespoons lime juice
Peel from 1 lime
1/2/ lb. (white) sugar
1 teaspoon active dry yeast.
Peel the ginger root and crush it lightly with the flat side of a cleaver.
Combine the ginger, lime juice, peel and sugar in a large bowl, and pour the boiling water over them
Put the yeast into a small bowl with 3 tablespoons lukewarm water and let it stand for a few minutes, then stir to dissolve it completely.
Let it stand in a warm, draught-free place for about 5 minutes, or until it begins to bubble. Add it to the ginger mixture, and stir thoroughly.
Cover the bowl and leave in a warm, draught-free place for a week, stirring every second day.
Strain through a fine sieve, bottle (in sterilized bottles), and let the beer stand at room temperature for 3 or 4 days longer.
Chill, and serve, with or without ice, in tumblers.
Makes 1 1/2 pints
