Homemade ginger beer

  • 6:10 Prep
  • 8 Servings


  • 1.25L (5 cups) boiling water, cooled slightly
  • 155g (3/4 cup) caster sugar
  • 50ml fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon dried yeast
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • Fresh mint leaves, to serve


  • 1
    Combine the water, sugar, lemon juice, ginger and yeast in a large bowl. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Set aside at room temperature overnight to infuse.
  • 2
    Use a slotted spoon to skim off and discard the scum that has risen to the surface of the yeast mixture. Use a funnel to pour the mixture into a 2L (8-cup) capacity airtight plastic bottle (don’t fill the bottle to the top). Place in the fridge to chill (the ginger beer must be kept well chilled).
  • 3
    Divide the lemon slices and mint leaves among serving glasses. Top with the ginger beer to serve.
