The Go-to Guys: Ginger Beer and Probiotic Soda

Christopher gets Sam hyped about the idea of making naturally carbonated ginger beer. Spoiler alert: you can make any flavor of probiotic soda you can imagine, using your handy-dandy ginger bugs.Disclaimer: Any homemade, fermented product can have trace amounts of alcohol present—similar to what you'd find in a piece of ripe fruit or something with vanilla extract added to it. We recommend doing your own additional research if you have concerns. :)
