Yikes. If you add yeast to a sweet beverage like root beer and then bottle, you're very likely to have exploding bottles and root beet all over the places. You need a method to stop fermentation at the appropriate point (like pasteurization.) Yes, read up first for sure.

I thought Munton's carb tabs were pre measured amounts of sugar.

You already have sugar in the root beer so you don't need to add any priming sugar or carb tabs if you're using yeast.

Keep in mind, that this recipe does not contain yeast. Carb tabs only work if something contains yeast...

Adding yeast to this recipe? I wouldn't. I would search out another one that is proven to taste good with yeast for carb'ing.

When I make soda, I just make everything and bottle it un-carbed, and store it in the fridge then when we're ready, i use a siphon for small amounts, but I use dry ice for large amounts. Just a pea size piece for a two liter bottle.

i used to make a lot of root beer, i always used bread yeast for the carbonation, only let it sit out until the bottle got hard. Then i put it in the fridge to stop the fermentation, the alcohol content was low (at least based on the taste) and i never had a bottle evplode, but i normally vented it once a week just to be sure, it normally was gone within a couple of weeks though.
