I'm guessing the nutmeg is ground though???
As for everything else, I placed an order with herbco.com today. I had to order 1/4# of most things...hopefully I can get a couple batches out of what I've ordered.
Any idea how this recipe will taste if kegged? I'm thinking for my first shot at this I'll bottle on yeast, but I'd much rather keg and then bottle after it's carbonated. I've been brewing beer for just over a year now but I've only made rootbeer once, and that was with an extract. For some reason, it took over a week for the bottles to carb up using champagne yeast. I also forgot to shake the extract bottle before pouring into the bucket (I only used 1/2 the bottle)...I don't think that helped the flavor at all. I'm hoping to avoid both of these same issues with this recipe.
