i would be concerned that the wood has absorbed allot of the rootbeer flavor and will release it into your brew.

Ya, if you like root beer flavored brew, then by all means, cause you will never get it out..... i would make an assload of root beer though, because that thing is way to cool to waste!

Root beer seems to penetrate everything, including PET plastic, I'm sure that wood would be permanently root beer flavored.
