    Ginger beer!

    The one on the right also has a couple turmeric roots in it, hence the colour.

    When you are one step ahead of the crowd, you are a genius.
    Two steps ahead, and you are deemed a crackpot.

    Update ...

    Didn't taste great. But had 6-7% alcohol so it worked as a "drink". Was soapy tasting and bitter at bottling time, but added more sugar then for a further fermentation ... a week later, better - soapiness was gone but still bitter. It did carbonate,and become more "dry".

    But tasted like lemon peel (I didn't peel the lemons). Next time I'll cut back on lemon (or none). I have some mango and blackberry brew going now ... hopefully it'll be better Mom has pineapple rhubarb strawberry brewing - smells amazing.

    So ... fruit wine turned out way better than ginger beer .. really good in fact!!

    Bottled it today, ready now to scale up!
