    Eyup all.
    There's a recipen on this fine forum that explains how to make ginger beer from scratch, its been going a few years i believe.
    Anyways I want to make some for myself (a 40 pint batch) but I only have a stainless stock pot that can safely boil 6 litres. Buying a mash tun isn't an option sadly.
    My question is, can I boil the kilo of ginger/lemons etc in the 6 litre pot and add that to my FV then fill to the required level? I plan to add the sugar and yeast at this point.

    Also, while leaving to ferment should I leave the ginger etc in the FV or filter it out before adding yeast and sugars?

    Cheers people

    Using calculator on here calculate the amount of sugar (cane sugar?) to achieve desired OG. boil the sugar and ginger together with the lemons (peels removed and juiced) for 10-20min add that to fermentor than top up fermentor with cold water to bring to pitch temp of around 20c and you should be good;).

    The recipie have any info on brew steps? How much ginger you adding ?
