A good way to use extra yeast
If you have upgraded your yeast on a beer kit this is a good way to use the dry yeast packet that comes in the box.

Use Champagne Yeast and 2 Liter Bottles
I had some 24 oz PET bottles around the house for recycling and I thought I would try to sanitize them and make a gallon of root beer using some bakers yeast I had._x000D__x000D_My guess was that the smaller bottles allowed the yeast to eat all the sugar very quickly. The end result was over carbonation and no sweet taste (almost like diet soda). I will try this again since Root Beer is one of my favorites and next Summer I want to have home made root beer with home made ice cream for my nieces.

This stuff is great!
My kids love this stuff. I generally make it in 2 gallon batches using about 2/3rds the recommended sugar and about 1/3 bottle of extract. I use the minimum amount of yeast, bottle it and let it sit in the basement for about 4 days. Perfect! Oh, and since I have quite a few 'other' bottles laying around, I use special caps so the kids (and adults) know what they are getting. :)

Its Good But...
Its good. Better than Zatarans that has way too much -wintergreen-mint type flavor. This is a good one but I always use light brown sugar instead of cane, then use 1 1/2 times more extract than called for. I'd say make only 3 gallons out of the mix, and still use all the sugar. Ultimately, I think Gnome has a better flavor, but I will use this again as well for change of pace.

Read the directions before you start, I forgot to add sugar DOH! it smelled fantastic but tasted like club soda. I ordered another batch so I could try and do it right the second time. I will update when it's done.

Favorite root beer
The best root beer extract I've tried. Adding just a little phosphoric acid gives it just enough bite.

Kids love it!
The kids had a great time making this! It is a really good tasting root beer. Easy to make, great tasting, and cheaper than buying it in the store. You really have control with what and how much goes into your soda with this!

Any alcohol content when finished?
A shopper on Nov 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you are using yeast to carbonate there will always be some amount of alcohol present in the finished product. The only way to assure an alcohol free root beer is to force carbonate with CO2 with a kegging system. In college we played around carbonating with dry ice but the results were poor at best and the process was dangerous. Just get kegs and you will never look back!
What prevents the yeast from producing alcohol while trying to build carbonation?
A shopper on Jan 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Different sweetners
If I am force carbonating a four gallon batch, how much sugar do I add?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: sorry but I am out of town for a week. However, I most have too much as I must be careful when I open the cap as they are extra gassy/ even explode.
