How To Make Naturally Carbonated Ginger Beer At Home. The process of making a wild yeast ginger beer or naturally fermented , naturally carbonated ginger beer is pretty easy once you’ve made the ginger bug. Ingredients:

30 black peppercorns
12 allspice berries
12 cardamom pods
3 cloves

*notes on sugar in ginger beer: You’re welcome to make the ginger beer much less sweet if you prefer. I would say the lowest you can go on sugar is 1/2 cup (170g).

I’ve mad a LOT of ginger beer. I highly recommend only using 2 Tbsp of ginger bug per gallon of water. Yes, that’s right, 2 Tbsp. Anything more than this is unnecessary for carbonation, and will leave you with an overly-yeasty final product (IMO). As a result, you can also maintain a smaller volume of ginger bug.
