CHOW Ginger Beer

Today it has been 6 days. I am concerned. I have a white residue at the bottom of my bowl however on the surface I have some bubbles but mostly a film of what looks like ginger.....I am going to bottle on saturday...Just to clarify - you strain the "bug" through a fine mesh sieve as well? There will be enough yeat for carbonation? I spoke to a brewer today and he did not understand how carbonation would take place with out yeast.....I am very curious to see what happens. ps. I live in Los Angeles and am not using a thermometer - this is okay, no? Thanks for the help and the inspiration to actually do this!

Date Syrup

Hi Friends,
Thanks for all the suggestions. I just came from Jons in Hollywood where I picked up a nice big jar. Now I have to go try Super King - that sounds like my kind of market.

matjes herring

matjes matjes matjes - i just returned from 6 weeks in the homeland - sweden - and many a matjes i did eat. my favorite way to eat matjes in the summer is with boiled new potatoes, sour cream and chives - if you have a great schnaps that is an added treat and really brings out the flavour of the fish. my dad always serves it at lunch on buttered pumpernickel topped with a semi soft boiled sliced egg - after the first bite he lifts his home flavored schnapps...life can be so good. purchase at ikea or olsens on pico.
