But seriously, it just sounds like homemade ginger ale to me. More like a soda than a brew.
I recently started brewing soda with my daughter. This recipe is similar to what we have made. Zima...was just joking with my friend about brewing some...
What are the raisins for? For complexity?
Looks tasty. I'd do this in a PET bottle for safety concerns.
A few of the recipes I have seen have raisins added to them. There wasn't a lot of info out there about it but some I found says raisins add flavor, add body and mouthfeel and help with clarity.
