Fart Beer

This weekend, we made our first batch of ginger ale. From scratch. It was going to be root beer, but that was a bit more involved.

The younger boy wanted to know how all the stuff works. Basically, there are four ingredients: water, sugar, flavoring (or extract, if you want to be fancy), and yeast. I explained that the yeast eats the sugar and then makes gas from it. He didn't understand exactly what that meant, so I said the yeast farted.

Oh boy. All I've been hearing about all weekend is farting yeast and how we made 'fart beer'. I'm betting the kids at school are getting an earful, too.

At least yeast farts aren't too malodorous.

That sounds like it was a lot of fun. Was it difficult making the ginger beer overall? We've been looking at those homebrew kits for something to do eventually.

I miss your posts, btw.
