Cleaned this up a bit - removed "fresh" from the ginger - we assume all fresh ingredients are fresh. I also removed the "Any Call Brand" from the Rye - we also assume you're using high quality ingredients and that if you think any Rye will work, other people will use whatever Rye they have on hand.
