Default A & Dubwa Woot Beer

Made this a week ago, pretty close IMO to A&W, little creamier.

2oz (1 bottle) McCormick Root Beer Extract
64 oz Light Corn Syrup
1 lb Dark Brown sugar
3 lb cane sugar


Heat 6 qt water in stock pot to simmer, add corn syrup and sugar. simmer 30 minutes. Cool pan in ice bath to 90.

Transfer to keg/bottleing bucket

Add Root Beer extract, bring volume to 5 gallons (top off keg)

Carbonate in keg or proceed with yeast method in bottles.

Shouldn't there be a difference in sugar levels between a forced carbonation in a keg vs a yeast method in bottles?

Wouldn't this recipe be too much sugar/syrup for a forced keg situation?

The yeast methods typically only use a small amount of yeast to carbonate. If it used more amounts you would create an alcohol taste and/or blow up the bottle. The amount of sugar in this recipe is so high I think it also won't affect too much if you use a little less for bottleing.

FWIIW, I kegged mine, and the recipe is what I used. I didn't subtract any to offset the difference.

I finally got around to making this up. It definitely is creamy and super sweet, however, i am going to use 4oz of extract next time cause 2oz isn't enough IMO.

My kids love root beer. I told them about it and they really want me to make it for them. The dark brown sugar, is that for the creamy taste? I would love to make some cream soda also.

I think the corn syrup gives it the creamy taste. I say this cause I did a Cream Soda with a pretty similar recipe and used vanilla and corn syrup and it was ridiculously creamy and sweet. The brown sugar gives a real caramel flavor to it I think.

I've been looking for a good A&W recipe. I'll have to give this one a try.
