Read how to make a "ginger bug" in this post: Original post
Ginger Beer Recipe:
After 7 days your ginger bug should be bubbling, if it's not throw it away and start again. If it is, it's ready to use.
Dissolve 3 cups of Rapadura in 10 cups of boiling water (next time I make it, instead of boiling water I am going to use ginger tea, which you make by steeping cut up ginger in boiling water). Once the sugar is dissolved add the juice of 4 lemons, and 20 more cups of water/ginger tea. Mix well, cover the bowl tightly and leave for a week. After 7 days transfer to eight quart bottles with corks or caps and leave for 14 days at room temperature.
