My family makes ginger margaritas, ginger cakes and ginger ice cream. We chew candied ginger and keep it in our cheeks while in class or driving. So I am obviously slacking by not doing a real ale. Maybe a cream ale with ginger added? Glyn Southern Middle TN Backwood Carboys Return to table of contents

Sherretz" <msherretz at me.com> Subject: Ginger Beer Hi Ralph, I made a Pilsner last fall and decided to add 180g of fresh ground ginger in the secondary at 60deg F for a couple weeks and bottle conditioned with 25% extra sugar(corn sugar) and it won 2 contests and is asked for everywhere I go. Least this would be a good start for you. Mike Owner, My Homebrew Store Shanghai, China Sent from my iPhone Return to table of contents

It has apparently been established that lager beer was originally introduced in America just down the road from Allentown in Philadelphia by a brewer named Wagner in 1842. You could also go with a weissbier, which wouldn't have been out of place, particularly with the wave of German immigration that hit Pennsylvania around that time.
