I'm about to start a brew using a 'Simply Ginger Beer' kit. I've heard that it's sweet, and light which is what I want, but it's not very gingery. Would it be ok to add some grated and boiled fresh ginger at the point the batch is first made up? Or would it be better to add it after a week or so?
The next obvious question is: What would be a good starting quantity? I'm not sure if we're talking 50g or 500g!
Other info: I'm fermenting it in a 5 gallon glass carboy. Will be using 1kg brew enhancer. Will be using the included yeast/sweetener sachet. I plan to bottle it in flip-tops at the end.
I'm new to this, I've only done 4 or 5 kit brews with varying degrees of success.
