The homebrew bug bit me tonight but all my fermenters were full already with delicious beer and I didn't have any grain onhand anyway. So I figured I'd try making root beer! I got out some licorice and sarsparilla root I ordered from AHS ages ago that I never bothered to experiment with, and, adding whatever seemed good as I went, boiled it with hops, molasses, sugar, salt and orange peel.
I guess we'll see how it turns out. Cheers
