I would like to retract my statement above. I was ill-informed about the carb tabs, did a little more research and come to find out, you DO have to use yeast with the carb tabs... OOPS. I have a recipe for bottled Root Beer though. I will post it soon.

Did you ever post that recipe? If so where?
Thanks

The SWMBO does not drink beer and in order to get a kegerator I had to promise her one tap would be root beer. I am going to try this tonight. She cannot have corn syrup, and most soda these days is sweetened with it so this will be very good for her!
I hope I can find those two roots around here at a specialty store.

Cool! I also found sarsaparilla is a good substitute for sassafrass root.

I am very new to kegging in General. I have only had my beer on tap for a week and still trying to find what is the best carbing technique for me. I have read so many different ways of doing it. How do you carb up your root beer?

I put all beers/sodas on 30 psi for 24 hours and check. Some beers are ready, but it seems soda takes a bit longer (36 hours or so).

After that, I set it at 12psi and I am happy with the carb level: 12' of 3/16" hose out of all kegs.

You are right, as everyone has their own methods. This works for me.

Thanks for the help!

Update: So I made the root beer that day, and man is it good. Loved It! So easy and simple. I wasn’t able to get the Sassafras root; ended up using sarsaparilla root instead. My SWMBO loves sweet things so I put 2.0 pounds of white sugar instead of the 1.5. A little sweet but nothing to complain about, but next time I will follow recipe verbatim.

Thanks again!

It's debatable whether safrole is a significant carcinogen or not, and with all the other crap we are all exposed to on a regular basis I wouldn't be worried at all about drinking this. In fact, I'd love to try an authentic sassafras root beer.

Thanks for the recipe.

Most LHBS have them, Midwest supplies stocks them, although they are usually out...look around online.
