just opened my first batch of homebrew ginger ale. tasty. now, where’d i put the bourbon?


  1. that fast? wow. so – did the AB folks set you up with some yeast?

  2. yep. American Brewmaster (http://www.americanbrewmaster.com/) is where i got the brewer’s yeast, tho the helpful guy at the counter let me know this: you can use significantly cheaper “champagne yeast” to do the same job. i’ll try that on my next batch.

    i did also find a recipe that called for the more common baking yeast, but the guy at brewmasters indicated that baking yeast would have some impact on the flavor.
