This ginger beer is way to sweet for my taste. Anyone has a recipe for a homemade version?

I wish I did, my little boy loves it! But once I had to judge a contest for homemade ginger beer and some were so 'yeasty' that it kind of put me off....

I <3 ginger beer but my bf is pretty put off by it. I haven't tried either of these, but this post has 2 recipes and lovely photos :) http://crumpetsandcakes.blogspot.com/2010/07/homemade-ginger-ale-two-ways.html

We like the Macs ginger beer due to that very fact - the others just seem too sweet. I do have a recipe for home made ginger beer somewhere... will dig it out for you. Have to admit you've got to be careful with it.. too much yeast activity and you get bottles blowing up. One year the yeast went too far made some potent alcohol - a fact we discovered after Dad had to go and lie down after drinking it! LOL!

@Alessandra: Yes, I've tried one recipe using yeast and I thought it was too much. I didn't make it since then.

@Xi: Thanks for the link. Will have a try.

@Penny: o, poor Dad. The effect can be quite strong, ae. Will look forward to hearing from you about the recipe soon, Penny. And thank you :)
