Here is my very technical recipe:

As much ginger as you can’t eat bothered to peel, blitzed in the food processor
One lemon and one lime per gallon
A teaspoon of ground ginger per gallon

Boil the above for half an hour or so
Strain off the ginger and fruit, dissolve 400-500g of sugar per gallon depending on your desired ABV (OG of 1.038-1.045)
Top up to a gallon with cold water and pitch when it’s at room temperature or so
I used a cider yeast with sweetener for my second batch after the first batch was too dry.

Similar here but with the addition of a handful of raisins, a pinch of chilli and a couple of cloves (for a five gallon batch). I prefer dry so I've stuck with EC-1118 champagne yeast.

I got started via the thread I linked to above and it's become a firm favourite with some. Others hate it

It's such a cheap, simple and robust recipe I often recommend it to others who fancy a bash at some brewing.

I ought to try straining off the ginger and lemon pre-fermentation. Instead I siphon into a fresh vessel a day or so before bottling, leaving most of the pulp behind.
