This a recipe for lemon and ginger wine that I got from modern day hippie on the selfsufficientish.com web site I got the brewing bucket and two demijohns from free cycle so could not wait to put them to good use.

Hi this is a bit of a self made recipe but have made three lots and seems to work fine
also unless you grow lemons or ginger most of its shop brought im afraid so a bit of a cheat but still a lot nicer and cheaper than any shop brought ones ive tried.
you will need a beer or wine fermenting bucket and two demijohs
this makes 12 bottles
ingredients
1LB stem root ginger (can be grown but never managed to grow that much)
12 lemons
2kgs sugar
yeast any will do i use two sachets of dried bread making yeast
this is the easy part chop up the ginger slice the lemons and throw into the bucket add about 6-8pints of hot water and soak overnight.
next day add enough water to make up to 10 litres and leave for a further two to three days this could be left longer but the ginger starts to go funny so i wouldnt recomend it.
now for the messy part remove the lemons and ginger and squezze at as much quice as possible strain the liquid and dissolve in the sugar.
place into the two demijohns and add a sachet of yeast to each.

after three weeks or when all bubbling has ceased i add two cambden tablets into each demijohn and bottle
you can also filter the wine at this stage as well if wanted.
now the fun part this wine has two flavors if left for a week its very lemony with a hint of ginger but after three months it loses the lemon flavor and becomes more of a ginger wine
Ps for true ginger fans try making some now and leaving a couple of bottles till christmas but dont blame me if its to strong
happy drinking

    sides. They do not disappoint when it comes to durability. Another big difference between a portable grill
    and a regular one is that the portable grill uses a small propane
    cylinder rather than a conventional five-gallon propane tank.
