I'm going to try to make root beer. What suggestions do you guys have for yeast-less carbonation? I'm going to be using Zatarains but I'm assuming that following the recipe will make it too sweet since there will be no yeast to use up some of the sugar.
It may take a real man to brew a big beer, but it takes a big man to brew a real beer.

I just mix mine up to taste, and use about 3/4 of the sugar the recipe says. I'm not one for super sweet drinks, though, so you may want a bit more to your taste.

I force carbed a raspberry soda. 4 gallons and 8 cups of sugar, it tasted just right. Not to sweet.
