Hi all,
I started boiling up some ginger, chilies, ginger powder, dark brown sugar and cinnamon to add to a Coopers Ginger Bear Kit.
In my haste, i accidentally added a can of Black Rock Cider!! (not reading the label... derrrr) :blink:

So have i just made 22L of brown swamp water, or should i press on and see what happens?

CARRY ON !!! You could end up with Ginger Bear, Polar Bear or even Panda Bear, you won't know till you fermented it - black bear is even a possibility.

Best way to find out if it is ruined is ferment it and taste it in a couple of weeks. ;)

I've done ginger beer cider. It's good. But I don't use tins, so your millage may vary.
