Add raisins, ginger and activated yeast. Give it a good stir.
Close the top with a wine making bubbler or a cap with a hole in for gas to escape.
Let stand for 5 days at room temperature
More than 36 hours will give it a beer fermented taste with higher alcohol.
Strain ginger beer twice to remove raisins and sediment.
