But I've always had good luck using a basic ginger bug as a starter for all sorts of recipes...doesn't have to be used exclusively for ginger beer. In fact I'm often alarmed at how rapidly the carbonation builds up. I've had ferments blowing caps off bottles within 48 hours using a ginger bug. I always enjoy the flavor from this technique too.
