Welcome to the Ginger Beer Plant.
My Ginger Beer Plant has never in it's history been cultured along side any other cultures so when you make an order from me you can be sure you are getting the original Ginger Beer Plant containing the yeast and bacterium Saccharomyces florentinus and Lactobacillus hilgardii (Brevibacterium vermiforme). I am not a big brand I am just some guy working really hard to keep pure, unmixed Ginger Beer Plant in the community. It is only 8 years since the Ginger Beer Plant was just a memory. A number of members of the yahoo group got together to buy a pure sample of Ginger Beer Plant from a culture bank in Germany and in the nick of time too as since then they have no longer offer it. Sure there are companies that also offer Ginger Beer Plant but some offer Tibicos fed ginger and some have the real thing but since they also culture other similar cultures there's no way of telling if you'll get a mixture of different cultures. I believe this is how the Ginger Beer Plant was lost in the first place since if you look at the analysis of the other similar cultures they usually contain bits of the Ginger Beer Plant culture. This is a bit like, well imagine no longer being able to buy pure yellow paint, you can get slightly yellow paint, you can get orange, cream and green but true yellow, bright, clear, sunny yellow has gone. That would be sad. So that's why I don't offer any other cultures because I want you and everyone else to be able to get the GBP our grandparents remember growing up with.
