I brewed this up last thurs and kegged at midnight. Saturday at 3 pm was 39 hours at 30 psi then I dropped to 10 psi. Just tasted and the fluid is still flat, is that normal? What kind of time frame might it take to be drinkable?

It is supposed to cause cancer but my Grandmother had sasafrass tea every day of her long life..........she died at 89. I think there is alot worse things that you can consume. I have sasafrass trees on my farm and I occasionally dig out roots and make tea on the stove.

I have done this recipe 2 times except I havent had access to Zatarains. The first time I used McCormicks which was OK in my opinion but all my friends and family liked it quite a bit and the 2nd time I used Watkins which was not as good as the first and the color was more tan than dark brown. I also added 1.5oz of pure vanilla extract to the 2nd batch. Think I am going to just have to order Zatarains cause I cannot find locally. I do like the vanilla addition. Any other extracts I should try?

Rainbow and Gnome are OK, too.

I think I ordered from Zatarains, direct: Root Beer Extract

I've made sweet bottled root beer before. what I did I got a 5% alcohol in the root beer then what I did was back sweetened it using a artificial sweetner like Splenda(it don't ferment)to the right sweetness. Then priming my batch with 2/3 cup of corn sugar and bottled. It never blew and I had a hard rootbeer.

The splenda thing don't work with kegging it, it just sinks to the bottom and turns sour.

Bk2X: are you using the Zatarains now, or something else?

I am always looking for better extracts, so let me know if you find something.

I found the zatarains extract on the zatarains web site for 2.00/4 oz bottle; 1.66 for 12 or more.

Is the sassafras root 2 oz fresh or dried?
