I have been trying to make some home made root beer using Watkins root beer extract and it seems no matter how I make it it doesn't taste right at all, I'm starting to give up on making home made syrups. First i tried making it like it says on the back of the box, which their measurements seemed odd to me, especially for how much syrup is needed compared to seltzer. I mix it with water then force carbonate the whole thing, that didnt taste right, so I tried a recipie using a cup of brown sugar, cup of normal sugar, a cup of water, and 2 tablespoons of the extract, that didnt taste right wither. It seems no matter how i make it it simply taste like really sweet seltzer with an aftertaste of rootbeer, rather than just like rootbeer. I have heard of maltodextrine but have not tried it, would it help or is watkins just a terrible root beer extract? Please help this is very frustrating.
