Default What is a great recipe for rootbeer i havnt found one

I have tried a Root beer recipe using yeast sugar and extract... And water. It didn't work well I need the right ratios of sugar and extract and yeast if that matters. I'm trying to use two liter bottles.

My home made root beer recipe:

Put this mixture into jar and cover it with cloth at-least 2 hrs on cool place.

Do you have a smaller scale recipe that fits in a two liter bottle?

Which extract have you tried? I made some with the cheapest crap out there and it got great reviews last weekend. I didn't care for it and mean to try the sprecher and gnome brands next.

All of these brands can be mixed into 2L bottles. Just add water or extract to suit your taste.

Doesn't dry ice kill the yeast? Yeast needs heat in order to work.
