Gnome Spicy Ginger Beer Review

A few weeks ago I made a 2.5 gallon batch of Gnome’s ginger beer.  I first dissolved 2 pounds of sugar in a quart of water, added 2oz of extract, and then brought it up to 130F.  Then I dumped the mix into a keg and added the remaining 2 gallons of water.  I carbed it fizzier than normal, 15psi.

The resulting soda is pretty good but not as good as ginger beer sodas I’ve had before such as Sprecher’s.  It has a nice ginger zip but there’s not much depth to the flavor other than sweetness.  Also the soda has the same murkiness as the original mix in the bag, each glass looks like tan dishwater.
