Kind of curious about the Splenda thing myself.....I've made root beer for the kiddies, but SWMBO got me thinking about doing a diet soda just for kicks. Do you replace all the sugar with splenda or just a portion of it?
smoke, I'd recomend sticking with a simple kit for the first time. Or, you could probably google 'home made root beer' and find something that way. Let us know what direction you end up going and how it turns out.
