My ginger love bug

This was the day before we let our 15 years old dog go. I was very restless and searched for things to do around the house to take my mind off. Making my first ginger beer was a very good distraction.

Started ginger bug on May 28
Daily feeding with 1/2 tsp sorganic cane sugar and more grated ginger. Ready on June 2

To make my Ginger beer concentrate concoction, I boiled half the amount of water of my total yield ginger beer, added 5 inches of thinly sliced ginger, 1 1/2 c. organic cane sugar to make the ginger as instructed in The Art of Fermentation by Sandor Katz, see my library in sidebar
I let the concentrate cool to room temperature before adding 1 c. of the ginger bug. Now we wait. I am suppose to stir it every day and look for  bubbles and taste test
