Homemade ginger ale  
Working from Alton's recipe
  • We found his recipe to be weak and sweet, so the latest batch has 2 oz ginger and 5 oz sugar
  • at 2 days (~48 hours), wasn't quite fizzy enough. Reseal the bottles for another day.
  • The next morning (~60 hours), when opened, the bottle ASPLODED (Michael Bay style). Much fizz had to be cleaned, but ginger ale was very tasty (and soothing for sore throats).

Oh I saw that episode a couple days ago and was planing on making it. Even got a 2-liter ready to go.

I tried my luck at a ginger beer a while back and it turned out bad...I an unrelated nasty got in there. Anyway will give this a try though I think I will replace the sugar with a little bit of ale extract. Good to know about the splosion. Where did you store the bottle while it was fermenting? Rough idea what temp it was at?
