I've been brewing all-grain for years but I'm brand new to sodas. I have in-laws who don't drink and I would love to start crafting root beer for them to drink when they come over. I would like to start with an extract and maybe use part brown sugar to sweeten. I'm not completely apposed to making the syrup from scratch but, I don't really have a trained pallet for root beer to craft a recipe for what I want. I do know Iron Horse is my favorite root beer and I would like to make something similar. Is there anyone here that has tried it and could point me in the right direction. Iron horse seems to have a very vanilla creamy feel to it. Maybe an extract with added vanilla and brown sugar for body?
