I would like to retract my statement above. I was ill-informed about the carb tabs, did a little more research and come to find out, you DO have to use yeast with the carb tabs... OOPS. I have a recipe for bottled Root Beer though. I will post it soon.

Did you ever post that recipe? If so where?
Thanks

The SWMBO does not drink beer and in order to get a kegerator I had to promise her one tap would be root beer. I am going to try this tonight. She cannot have corn syrup, and most soda these days is sweetened with it so this will be very good for her!
I hope I can find those two roots around here at a specialty store.

Cool! I also found sarsaparilla is a good substitute for sassafrass root.

I am very new to kegging in General. I have only had my beer on tap for a week and still trying to find what is the best carbing technique for me. I have read so many different ways of doing it. How do you carb up your root beer?

I put all beers/sodas on 30 psi for 24 hours and check. Some beers are ready, but it seems soda takes a bit longer (36 hours or so).

After that, I set it at 12psi and I am happy with the carb level: 12' of 3/16" hose out of all kegs.

You are right, as everyone has their own methods. This works for me.

Thanks for the help!

Update: So I made the root beer that day, and man is it good. Loved It! So easy and simple. I wasn’t able to get the Sassafras root; ended up using sarsaparilla root instead. My SWMBO loves sweet things so I put 2.0 pounds of white sugar instead of the 1.5. A little sweet but nothing to complain about, but next time I will follow recipe verbatim.

Thanks again!

It's debatable whether safrole is a significant carcinogen or not, and with all the other crap we are all exposed to on a regular basis I wouldn't be worried at all about drinking this. In fact, I'd love to try an authentic sassafras root beer.

Thanks for the recipe.

Where can I find these?
