I'm planning to buy some root beer extracts from Hop Tech. Is there extract good?
Also, the recipe they recommend is much simpler than others such as Gnome. They just use luke warm water, mix everything, then cap. Does this simple recipe work well because it sounds faster to make than others such as Gnome.
Also, they recommend Cooper's Ale yeast but they use a lot of yeast compared to the Gnome extract receipe. They use 7 grams of Cooper's yeast per 2 1/2 gallons. In comparison, Gnome only uses a rounded 1/4 teaspoon for 2 1/2 gallons. Why does Hop Tech use SO much more yeast?
