Bundaberg Ginger Beer is an Australian favourite - brewed from a family recipe that's been handed down from generation to generation it is made with the finest, locally grown ginger and sugarcane. That’s why it takes up to three days to brew every batch, ensuring maximum flavour in every bottle. Before you pop one open, hold it upside down and you can actually see the real brewed ginger pieces forming a flavour-filled cloud.
How Bundaberg is brewed
Grinding the Ginger
Dried ginger root that’s grown locally is dried using a special process and ground to a coarse flour, so that the natural flavour is preserved.
Making the Ginger Wort
‘Wort’ may not be the nicest sounding word, but it’s certainly what’s needed to make real, better-tasting drinks. The ground ginger is mixed with Queensland Cane Sugar and water. This mixture – the ‘Wort’ – is then heated to release flavours, sugars and starches from the ginger. The ginger starches are also broken down into fermentable sugars.
Fermenting with Yeast
A special yeast is carefully added to ferment the Wort. It extracts optimum ginger flavour and the distinctive, discerning taste of Bundaberg Ginger Beer.
Maturating the Ginger Beer
After fermentation, the ginger is craft-filtered to an exacting degree to leave behind just the right amount of tiny ginger pieces. These flavour-filled sprinklings of real ginger help give Bundaberg Ginger Beer extra flavour during maturation and beyond. At this stage the ginger beer is a concentrate. It is stored this way to maximise maturation and give it a unique, full flavour once the craft-brewing process is completed.
Making it Ready to Drink
After maturation, the ginger beer is diluted with water, sugar and citric acid to achieve it’s drinking strength and it is then carefully filtered. This is the last step in making the magic happen, before being the brew is carbonated and put into bottles.
The perfect ginger beer is now ready to be enjoyed.
