Hi hopmonster:Thanks for the reply!I've tried some soda extracts, but haven't really had much success. I'd definitely be interested in working with the raw ingredients.Reed's Ginger Ale is brewed almost exactly the same way as beer - just not long enough to become alcoholic.Ideas?
I'd love to see some brewing on a more advanced system than mine, but I took also planned a brewday for saturday.
