Thanks Beaches, just one thing, does the water have to be warm or boiling, or can it be cold ?.

I used to make ginger tea by simmering sliced ginger in water with lemon peel and a cinnamon stick. At that time I was eating sugar, so I used dark brown sugar to sweeten it. I bet that, if you made it very strong and sweetened it with Splenda, you could add it to sparkling water for a nice beverage. Whether or not that qualifies as "ginger beer", I couldn't say. But I bet it'd be great! (Too bad I can't drink it anymore- that much ginger is too irritating for my stomach). Let us know what you try and how it comes out!

CoolJ,

What did you use for sweetener finally? Sugar or Splenda?
