Greetings, home-brewers:

All this talk of ginger and honey in beer has made me curious. I've been
thinking of adding ginger to beer (cf: Papiazan's ginger-beer recipe --
I don't remember what it's called at the moment (I don't have the book with
me)) and am curious whether it matters whether one adds it to dark or light
beer?

I have an "Old Ale" kit, a "Scottish Ale" kit (looks rather amber), another
kind of "Ale" kit (four pounds), a can of light, unhopped malt extract, and
a can of dark, unhopped malt extract (both of these last are cans of syrup,
I daresay). In which would the honey and/or ginger be most
noticible/complementary?

- Ted
