Very nice! I've been thinking about the same concoction. Eventually I hope to make my own syrup and use it to brew a partigyle root beer after the mash for a big stout or a wee heavy. Some commercial syrup-based experiments seem like a good place to start though!

I placed some in a plastic bottle to keep track of the carbonation. It's getting there, but not quite done yet.

Like this ha ha. No it had a nasty plasticky aftertaste. So nasty I couldn't bear it. Good news is there were no glass grenades even after three or more weeks of bottling at about 74-78F. Oh well, back to the lab.

Plasticky taste, eh? Weird... Did you taste it before you bottled it?

Yea and it did have that aftertaste but I thought it was "green". I think it has something to do with the artificial flavors in the root beer barrel candies.

Quite possibly. I wonder how your brew would have turned out if you had just used some root beer flavoring instead? I still think you were really onto something here...

I might try it again sometime using all natural ingredients and the right yeast. I do have a mr.beer container that would be perfect for an experimental small batch.👍
