  • 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.

    Hello,I am going to be starting in on my first batch of forced carb soda but i'm wondering how
    much CO2 it takes to complete the process. I have a smaller tank that I've been using for doing

    Drinks are good cold....I don't really like drinking room temperature or tepid. The colder the
    better. I'm not saying add ice to your beer but keep it cold!

    So I came across an interesting article "how to keep a beer cold". The article suggests that
    condensation on your favorite beverage is not necessarily a good thing and can raise the temp
    of your beer ...

    Picked up PBW, Aspetox, and a picnic tap. I know the tap doesnt really fit with the purchase
    but it was a good price at the time. I will do my keg takedown and maybe put some pics together
    on Imgur to...

    St. Pug.....That is excellent information. I have a small co2 tank that I use for carbbing up
    the odd 2 litre bottle of soda already. I am currently looking for oxyclean and starsan and
