  • I'm learning to brew home made root beer and other beverages. This seemed like the best site for resources I've found so far. I've taken to drinking home made rootbeer and look forward to testing recipes and money willing, forced carbonation.

  • I've always wanted to try and make home made root beer (yeast fermented via concentrate). Recently I bit the bullet and got a basic setup which includes 48 plastic PETN bottles and caps, a very large bucket, and some different root beer flavors. I've mucked about with the standard extract recipes and recently ventured into testing some different sugars and even adding vanilla to see if the wife would like it; my daughter loves all the tasting!
  • I want to learn different recipes for root beer and learn new recipes for different sodas and soft drinks. I'm fairly excited at this because my family likes soda and I enjoy tinkering.

    This is true. Anytime you are using yeast to carbonate you will be left with sediment at the
    bottom. The trick is to open the bottle and let it sit for a moment so it drops out again and
    or to pour sl...

    Well as luck would have it I found myself with time and desire to get my keg up and running for
    Soda. I decided to keg up only sparking water and use my sodastream and other syrups to make my
    sodas. T...
