Is alcoholic ginger beer gluten free?
The traditional ingredients for making alcoholic ginger beer do not call for anything containing gluten. Traditionally, alcoholic ginger beer is made with the help of the Ginger Beer Plant. Not actually a plant at all, its a brewing combination of yeast and special bacterium responsible for fermenting the sugar, ginger and water that goes into making alcoholic ginger beer. Looking not unlike the culture used to make kombucha, the ginger beer plant would be used and reused, a little bit of it bottled from the last batch to create a new ginger beer plant for the next one. A yeast starter for making ginger beer, also known as a ginger bug can also be developed by mixing some water, brewers yeast and sugar but the taste of ginger beer brewed in this way is not thought to taste the same.
Traditional beer, like lager or ale, is made from malted barley that is steeped in hot water to make a wort. That wort is then boiled with a dose of hops and then left to ferment. For lager, the fermentation takes a bit longer and occurs in a cool, dark environment. For ale, the fermentation process is a bit quicker and is done at room temperature. Two different types of yeast are used for lager and ale, and if the beer has been made on malted barley then it will contain gluten. Traditional alcoholic ginger beer is not made with malted barley, so this makes naturally it gluten free, however, always check the label to see whether your chosen beverage is actually certified as gluten free or not as additional chemicals or processes may have been used which do contain gluten. Known gluten free alcoholic ginger beer available to order from Boozebud includes the Matsos Broome Brewery recipe.
Alcoholic ginger beer was created first in England and hit its peak of popularity around the eighteenth century. The recipes ingredients called for grated ginger spice, water, sugar and yeast, and was usually mixed with some lemon juice before being bottled, and that was it. It was renowned for its relatively low alcohol content and for its spicy and sweet taste, perfect served chilled on hot days. The recipe for the perfect tasting ginger beer will usually be a closely guarded secret. The balance of sugars and gingers are vital to creating a nice tasting, refreshing and sweet beverage as the wrong combination can leave the ginger beer brewer with a very bitter and spicy brew. Craft beer producers have begun to experiment with the use of champagne yeast to develop a new, even tastier version of this eighteenth century classic and it is experiencing a gentle resurgence. Champagne yeast is widely considered by craft brewers to leave a much crisper and cleaner tasting brew than traditional brewers yeast strains.
The soft drink known as ginger beer or ginger ale is an entirely different type of beverage that shares a name only. To make the soft drink, you add ginger flavouring to carbonated water and often quite a bit of sugar in the form of corn syrup. Its very different to the traditional Yorkshire based alcoholic ginger beer brewed in much the same way that ale used to be brewed.
