So, my fiancee and I went to a homebrew event and someone was serving ginger beer. My fiancee, a big ginger lover, tasted it and wanted it at the wedding but with more ginger. After doing some half-gallon test runs, the guy was nice enough to give me MOST of his recipe, we finally came up with a recipe she liked...remember she likes ginger
5 gallon batch:
10 lb of ginger simmered for 45 minutes
juice from 5 lemons
10 cups of sugar
I waited a week and tried some. It is at 6% ABV and taste good. Very spicy but good. The problem is the after taste. It has this gingerly bitter after taste. It has been in the primary for only a week. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it? May it disappear in a month? I need to serve it on 7/26 so any help will be appreciated. This aftertaste was not there for the test batches.
