This recipe is great! I substituted sarsaparilla for the sassafras and it is delicious. Thanks for sharing!!!

I am always looking for better extracts, so let me know if you find something.
Sorry for the delay. My last batch I used Watkins but was not very pleased. McCormicks was good but I have yet to use Sarsaparilla or Sassafras in any of my batches. I am going to order some Zatarains today and give it a go. Do you guys think Sarsaparilla or sassafras would help the flavor?

I love both sarsaparilla and sassafras - I think I actually like the sarsaparilla better.

I am very interested in the Sprecher. Is it an extract, or is it a mix? Has anyone tried Gnome?

I used gnome on my first batch without other additives. Pretty tasty, but I like zatarains better.

Zatarains is sold out of their root beer extract so going to look around for a similar deal to what they offer, if not, I will just grab a random extract to run with.

It's a mix comes in a 1 gallon jug, all you do is add 4 gallons of water mix and force carb. It has preservatives in it so you can't bottle carb it

I've used 4 oz and think it still has a good flavor.
