4.7 / 5.021 ReviewsExcellentExcellent tasting root beer. Kids love the fresh draft root beer & root beer floats. Difficult to carbonate in a keg system (as is any root beer from what I read), but eventually got it going. Will buy again.March 6, 2016Awesome sauce!Great Root beer sauce. Add water, carbonate, presto.March 5, 2016Great RootbeerGreat tasting. Not too sweet. My order was filled and sent quickly. My kids love the root beer and it is the best over vanilla ice cream.December 26, 2015The BEST root beer syrupI am ordering my second gallon as I type this!! I added a simple plastic hand pump (gallon size) that screws right on to the jug.....I use cold seltzer water in a large glass (12 oz can) and two pumps of the syrup....Makes instant root beer and the best!! Seltzer water is better for your health than club soda as it contains no sodium but still has plenty of fizz!!!April 17, 2015Easy to make - great tasteI made this to test my kegging skills and setup. Very easy to do. I opted to carbonate the water first. Here are the steps I took:_x000D_(1) Pour four gallons of water into a sanitized 5-gallon keg. (2) Seal the keg and carbonate it at 40psi @37 degrees for 48 hours. (2a) Important! Periodically shake the keg during the 48-hour carbonation period. You'll hear more CO2 going into the keg when you do this. (3) After 48 hours, release the pressure from the keg, open it, and slowly pour in the syrup. It will foam quite a bit during this step, so go slow. It took me approx. 10 minutes to pour the gallon of syrup in. (4) Seal the keg, hook it back up to CO2 @30 psi for serving. (5) Serve through 12 ft of 3/16" beverage line. Carbonation might need another day or two, but I found it to be carbonated quite well and tasty!November 12, 2014Works well with the Sodastream.I got this to use with my Sodastream system. Just keep the 1 part concentrate to 4 parts water ratio. The only problem I had is adding the concentrate to the pre-carbonated water, there is a trick, slowly pour the concentrate down the side of a tipped bottle, not straight in, or it will fizz all over.June 29, 2014Very good rootbeerI'm sold, this is the best root beer I've had. I served it to (forced upon) some people and they agreed it's excellent. It's easy to make up a batch. I'll never buy store bought soda again.December 19, 2013A liitle costly but also good tastingGood tasting root beer at a fair price. It's more costly than some of the other soda kits Midwest sells, but it tastes better and it's all done for me.November 5, 2013OK, this is very good rootbeerI had some at a fellow home brewers house and decided to get some. It's excellent soda. Based on this I'll try some of the other flavors.September 27, 2013I had to see what all the fuss was aboutSome of the guys at the home brew club were talking about how good this soda is. They brought some in and it was excellent so I got a kit. It's the best root beer I've had outside of one of the home brewers who makes his own sodas.September 7, 2013

You would add it to the finished beer after fermentation. There is an additive that kills off yeast to prevent fermentation in the soda extract.how many bottles will a gallon of syrup make?BEST ANSWER: The directions says mix 4 parts water to 1 part syrup, it makes 5 gallons. I keep one container beer, one wine coolers and one carbonated water on my 3 tap Kegco. I can mix as strong or weak as I like the root beer. Typically make it more like 8:1 or 10:1 for my taste.
It is really good for Root Beer floats. I'm on my second jug. I keep in a refrigerator next to the keg. So the answer it will make about 52 bottles.Do i need to dedicate the keg, line, and tap to root beer once this is used or will the flavors wash out? I have read on other sites this is required and dont want to dedicate my brand new keg for root beer only applicationsBEST ANSWER: Many of my corny kegs originally had various sodas in them, the ones that had contained root beer had the most difficult to remove aroma. It is the rubber parts that absorb the aroma so you can restore a keg by replacing the gas and pickup rings, under the posts, as well as the lid gasket/o-ring. I have never tried restoring a beer line but I suspect that the rootbeer aroma would be present if you dispense a light beer after having root beer on that line for some time. You could use an inexpensive picnic line and dedicate it to root beer. The Sprecher root beer is awesome by the way, I have a 10 tap walkin cooler with one tap dedicated to sprecher. I have found that most people think it is too sweet if you mix it with distilled or R/O water, I use my well water which has high alkalinity and it tastes better.
