Totally forgot to give it to him for Christmas and came across it in a drawer the other day so we are giving it a bash now.
Directions are as follows;
Put 200g sugar, 1 heaped tablespoon of spice mix and the juice of a lemon into a bowl. Pour on 2 litres of boiling water, stirring well and allow to cool. Sprinkle 1 packet of yeast onto the liquid, cover and leave to stand in a moderately warm place for 3 days. Stir and transfer liquid into a PET bottle. Scre top tight and leave in the same warm environment for 4 days. Relive pressure each day by loosening top momentarily. On the 4th day relieve pressure, allow beer to settle, then carefully transfer to a large jug, leaving the dregs behind. Chill if required. Enjoy!
So we now just have a further 2 days to wait until we can do the final stage of transferring it into a jug leaving the dregs behind. Having never made this before it will be interesting to see and taste how it turns out, we will keep you updated in a couple of days!!

All the best
