Ginger Aid - Ginger Beer

Large Saucepan
1 Gallon cold water, preferably filtered - without fluoride or chlorine
Ginger Root
1 - 2 Cups Sugar - Depending on preference of sweetness
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice - Bottled or Fresh squeezed
Small Strainer
Small funnel

In large saucepan, fill with 1 gallon of water and put on to boil

From the Ginger Root, cut off a nub - about 2-3 inches and grate and place into the saucepan of water. Turn down heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Turn off heat
Add in the Sugar - more or less, depending on your taste for sweetness, stir until dissolved
Add in Lemon Juice - Take a taste test can make changes if necessary before bottling

Leave mixture to cool down enough to bottle or even wait to go cold is OK.
With a strainer and a funnel - Ladle out the liquid into your prepared glass bottles, leaving about an inch from the top and cap. Don't fill all the way as it is going to become fizzy and could blow it's lid without that inch of space..
Careful when you go to open - unscrew a little at a time and probably you will have to put back on and leave for a minute before attempting again, as it will be FIZZY..
