How do you make Root Beer?
Where do you find the ingredients to make it?
Never made it but did find this online:
Hope that helps.
I have a bottle of Stoltzfus Root beer Extract.
It is from Enos S Stoltzfus
2355 Valley View Road
Narvon PA 17555
I bought it at Jamesport Missouri at the Amish store.
It contains 4 ounces, and it will make 5 gallons.
The instructions are thus:
Eight cups sugar
one half teaspoon powdered yeast
one bottle of root beer extract
5 gallons of warm water.
Mix together well and pour into one half gallon steralized bottles immediately.Fill bottles within one half inch of the top and turn lids on tight.
Place bottles in warm spot (70-80 degrees) The product should be ready to drink in 2 days.
Refrigerate after opening.
The ingredients in the extract are carmel color, propylene glycol, water, vegetable gum and corn syrup.
I haven't had the nerve to try it yet.
We tried making it for school last year. I left it a little long. You do get an alcohol content when making this.
Here's a how-to link courtesy of another forum member on here (sorry I forgot who!)
yep.. we just talked abut this in the cooking forum...
from bob Clark..
I've used rainbow, Zatarain's, and gnome extracts. they tend to run anywhere from 3.75 for the rainbow to 6.90 or so for the Gnome at homebrew suppliers. the last batch i did was the gnome and it is really good, basicly a real nice premium rootbeer. I keg my homebrews and use co2 instead of bottling so i dont have to worry about the bottles bursting, make sure to refridgerate after about a week or it will continue to carbonate... burst bottles get messy!
