This is my go-to recipe for making Ginger Beer.  I love it, as it is so easy to make.  Once chilled, it’s ready to use. When I grew up, ginger beer was a very popular drink in South Africa and many people had their own special recipe.  We could buy it, too (I believe one still can), and it was actually called ginger beer, not ginger ale. :)
