Ok kids, calm down on the vanilla, let's get back to cream soda recipes.

So I finally dug up the root beer recipe that I made and everyone keeps telling me that it tastes like it should be a cream soda:

Root Beer:
Sugar(inverted) : 5lbs
Caramel Malt - 60L : 2oz
Burdock Root : 1 oz
Wintergreen Leaves : 1 TBSP
Molasses : 1 fl oz
Sassafras Extract (Pappy's Sassafras Concentrate Instant Tea) : 5 fl oz
Vanilla Extract : 3 fl oz

I'd say pull the sassafras, burdock, and wintergreen out and it would make a rather tasty cream soda.

Steep the malt at no higher than 170°F, let it cool and add the molasses and extract. Then force carb at 30-35psi at 34-38°F until it reaches equilibrium.

Enjoy!

I never thought of adding malt to it. That would probably make for some interesting creme soda. Has anyone tried that? Is it any good?

Sounds interesting, I'm going to have to give it a try. I'm a little confused on the "carmel malt line though. Is 60L a type of malt and I put in 2oz, or does this mean something else?

Also, is this for a 5 gallon recipe? Or some other quantity of water?

Thanks,

I would take that to mean 2oz of 60L Crystal(caramel) Malt. As in whole malt, crushed/milled malt that is steeped in your water base. For example: Place crushed grains in straining bag and steep grains in x-amount water volume at 155F for 45 minutes and remove from heat. Rinse grain sack with x-amount water volume. (Method successfully used for caramel apple mead).

Example of product here: http://morebeer.com/products/crystal-60l-malt.html.

Unless there is a ready to use malt extract that someone knows of which would impart that same caramel goodness?

60L is a measure of how dark it is. I've used 20L or 40L before and it's not as strong a flavor.

MrFoodScientist...are there any malt extracts which would impart the same, or close, taste that the steeping of grains would impart?

Without having much experience in that arena, I would guess that Briess Sparkling Amber DME may work out, but I wouldn't know for sure. I like to use caramel malt because it doesn't pull out fermentables.
