I bought online and I've bottled it the other day.  Forgot to give it a swig to see where it was.  I didn't think the ginger was very prominent though. 

I will let you guys know how it turns out in a couple of weeks.

I've placed a ginger beer, based on the receive at the start of this thread.  I did add some extra herbs, not a lot though.  It's been down for 7 days today, gone from 1.052 to 1.35 on Thursday and today just checked it's 1.030, still after seven days.  I have no problems letting it ferment further but I gathered from the recipes i've read it would take 5 days plus a few days and many in the thread mention it get's close to 1.000 SG.  There is quite a bit of solids there but the ginger was pureed and boiled for 45 minutes.  Interested your thoughts.

Ahh, so didn’t put the purée in? I put the purée with 2 sticks of cinnamon, some cloves, and 2 lemons halves and an one half orange. They were the only solids.

temp is at 19 degrees with 0.5 degree differential

Cool thanks. Raised it to 22 degrees. Check in 48 hours to see what’s happening.

I see what you mean about the solids. Needed to pay attention to that for the next brew.  Still going.....slowly for last 4 days at 1.015.  So it should get to 1.000?

should get low/////

Got there finally.  It's 0.999 now. Cold crashing it now.  It's at 6 degrees and the solids has dropped but it's still alot.  The solids I think will have an impact on the bottling side.  What could be done?  Should I try and remove it or what should I do? Just worried about contamination or if I try and remove it.

Can you siphon it off to another fermenter (carefully?)
