might be the best yet. I think that's probably mostly because I've let it mellow a few days. (It is important to occasionally let out some of the CO2 to prevent explosions!) But anyway here are the main changes from the recipe that I tried this time:

(1) 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup honey.
(2) 3-4 tablespoons of ginger.
(3) 1 dried chili pepper.
(4) 1/4 tsp cinnamon.
(5) 1 tsp vanilla.

Very gingery. A little bite but not too much. Not too sweet. I may stick with this variant the next time I make ginger ale.

Prevent explosions? What are you thinking?

Sounds tasty. (My lime rickey-ade was sadly mostly a flop - never carbonated well. Still good as limeade, but I could have had that a week ago.)

What are you using for yeast?

I have the home made root beer, soda and pop book. I just need to get out and try some more. The guy at the home brew store hooked me up with some champagne yeast; i was just wondering if it was all that necessary to use it over bread yeast. Looks like next time I'll be dipping into the giant jar of bread yeast instead of heading to the brew shop.
