Simple and Delicious Ginger Bug Recipe

This Ginger Bug recipe can be used for any type of naturally fermented soda such as ginger ale and old fashion root beer or to help start out a vegetable ferment. Besides its wide range of uses, my favorite feature of the ginger bug is that is quick and easy to make.

The starter should be stored in a refrigerator when it is not in use. Remember to revive the ginger bug before it is used if it has been stored in the refrigerator. The starter should be revived every few weeks to keep it healthy.

Reviving a Ginger Bug starter

Remove starter from the refrigerator.

Add 1 tablespoon of sugar

Add about 1 tablespoon of ginger.
