Apple/Ginger Soda – an easy one!

I got this recipe from here and didn’t do much to it.

Apple Ginger Soda Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup ginger bug from yesterday’s ginger bug recipe
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon freshly juiced ginger (or crushed)
  • 3 1/2 cups freshly juiced apple (or unpasturized apple cider/juice)
  • half a stick of cinnamon per bottle

I like to make sure that the juice is room temperature before adding the bug, I don’t want to shock the poor baby!  Mix all ingredients except cinnamon stick and bottle (I prefer the swingtop (grolsch) style bottles, but the author of the original post recommends against them- YMMV on this point).  Drop half a cinnamon stick in each bottle and seal up.  When opening anything fizzy, point it away from your face.  This should be ready to drink in about 3 days (you should hear the gas escaping on opening if it’s ready)….although Sally says you should let it sit for two weeks before opening!  Anything that’s not drunk in two weeks should definitely be stored in the fridge…and I like to cool my soda before drinking it anyway.

Ferment and enjoy!  Let me know how it went!
