Ginger Honey Ale

Here is what I used in my first batch of beer. The usual home brew batch is 5 gallons (19 liters) but that is a lot of bad beer if it goes wrong so I only made 10 liters.

500 grams of dry malted barely extract
200 grams of honey
100 grams of brown sugar.
15 grams of shredded ginger
half a packet (20 grams?) of hops (I forget the variety).
Packet of Yeast (Frencher)

I made it on Saturday and it was bubbling away happily by Sunday morning. If all goes well by next Sunday I should be able to bottle it.



  1. In the Libyan expat community beer brewing was a highly respected activity - nay art! They would go to the lengths of asking fellow travelling expats to the UK to pick up various varieties of hops.
