I just picked up a new keg and tap assembly, and finally am going to branch into the non-alcoholic world of root beer. Picked up an extract, and plan on altering the recipe somewhat to make it better... I grabed 8oz of malto-dextrine, and plan on using that in addition to the normal sugar recipe (likely, raw organic sugar). I also want to substitute some honey in there (most likely meadowfoam thanks to it's marshmallow/vanilla flavorings). Do i substitute this pound for pound? Or is there some other method?
This is going in a 3gal corny, found a guy who had probably 20-30 in his garage!
