Ginger Root has been used in beers for a long time. Most known to be found in holiday ales, but ginger is finding its way into many different styles. Many farmhouse style beers are using ginger to give the beer some more complexity. Ginger works well with sweet or bitter orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and coriander. For a subtle ginger flavor, us 1/4 - 1 oz. in the boil or secondary fermenter. For a pronounced ginger character, use 2 - 4 oz.
