This is really awesome. This guy gives detailed instructions on how to make your own ginger ale, using backyard fruit, water, sugar and dried ginger. The idea is similar to making sourdough bread from scratch, something that I have *tried* a couple of times in the past. Most of the time my roommates would just throw out the starter after they smelled it and saw a bubbling mass of goop in the fridge. But this, this is awesome.

I don’t have any fruit in my backyard right now, but I bet organic grapes or something at the supermarket would work fine. It sounds like something that would take a while to try, but if it worked it would probably be worth it. If anybody tries this, let me know how it turns out. I may try it myself if I find the time.
