Didn't much care for this one. The sauerkraut took on the taste of the ginger ale, which wasn't good, and the brats didn't taste all that different than usual. If you try this recipe, I suggest you not put the sauerkraut in the pot with everything else. Think I'll stick to grilling my brats, or braising them in beer.

This was a great recipe. I actually did have beer and added 2 liters (6 cans) of beer in place of the ginger ale. I followed everything else exactly. Upper Michiganders who know their bratwurst said they were the best brats they had ever tasted. GO PACK!!

I thought this was pretty tasty. I cut the gingerale in half and added water for the rest since someone said it tasted too much like the gingerale. I put them under the broiler for 5 mins to get the casing crispy!
