lol! fair enough. i'll certainly take your word for it.
The man who intoxicates himself on bad whisky is sometimes moved to kill his wife and set his house on fire, but the victim of applejack is capable of blowing up a whole town with dynamite and of reciting original poetry to every surviving inhabitant.

Heard from a LHBS that Sprecher was no longer going to sell the gallon syrup jugs. Anyone else hear this?

You get a better deal if you order their 4-pak of syrup from their website or brewery.

I ordered a case from the store. Being in Canada I needed to have it shipped to a US address. Anyway I have been patiently waiting for it to carbonate. It actually tastes OK while a little flat. I can't wait for the month to be up. I understand from other posts that the big part of how it tastes is the honey. All we need now is diet bees and then the low calorie folks can enjoy it too. So far I do not have any flavor transfer to my beer taps.

Update. The root beer tastes great. I have it at 30psi and have the flow control valve on my old Perlick almost closed. The 1/4" line is only about 7' long so I am going to make it a couple feet longer but even with this short of a line it pours OK, just a little foamy.

Reason: Updated the taste

Ha. Cool thing, finding this thread. I saw some of this in an H-E-B the other day and grabbed a bottle and it is GOOD.

I had the cream soda, and it is by far the best cream soda I've ever had.

I would not suggest trying to carbonate after you add the syrup. instead I'd carbonate 4 gal of Water then jumper over 1 gal of water In port to In port.
