I get a lot of request for this recipe so here it is.this is originally Fuzzymittenbrewings recipe.
(2 gallons)
1lb. brown sugar
8 oz lactose
2lbs light DME

Boil DME, brown sugar, and lactose with about 8 cups water for 30 minutes. Pour in primary. Top off. Let cool and pitch yeast (I used WLP001). Ferment for 5-7 days. Stabilize (if kegging). Wait another week.

at bottling-
2 cup sugar boiled in 1 cup water
10oz wildflower honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
1.25 tbsp root beer extract (McCormick) taste after adding 1 tbsp then proceed to your taste.
Pastuerize if your bottling. I have thick flip top bottles and didn't need to pasturize but regular bottles probably couldn't hold it.
Enjoy!

Nizzle,
How long do you let your bottles carb before you pasturize them?
Thanks
Kyle

Usually it isn't long. You need to pop one open daily until it hits your desired carb level and then pasteurize them.

Hey all, I'm kind of new to this and I am not sure how to pasteurize the bottles after they are done carbonating. Does anyone have any advice or a link that could show me how to complete this process? Thanks in advance.

I have also heard you can use the sanitize/heated dry setting on your dishwasher. I have never done it personally but I like the idea because it keeps any potential bottle bombs contained.

You can heat the bottles in a water bath on the stove to 160 for 10 minutes or you can put them all in the dishwasher on the sanitize setting. Some dishwashers don't get hot enough though. Search stove top pasteurization for a detailed walk through

What do you mean by "Stabilize (if kegging). Wait another week"

How are you stabilizing and why wait a week? Are you carbing it at the time you keg it but waiting to condition?
