Great tasting, old style root beer.
I made a 5 gallon corny. Used entire package of extract, 2lbs granulated sugar, 2lbs brown sugar, and 1lb of light kayro syrup. Put 35 PSI on it for twenty four hours and poured into frosted mug. This has gotten many compliments. Some said it reminded them of the old A & W style root beer.

Great option for the price
I used entire package for 5 gal soda keg, plus sugar, and forced carbonated. Turned out very nice. Great flavor. Not as creamy and less head retention compared to the Sprecher premixed syrup, but a great option especially considering the cost.

Oh Yeah!
I used the entire packet for a 5 gallon batch that I put in a soda keg and force carbonated. The flavor is excellent and the kids keep begging me to order/make some more. Root Beer floats - Oh Yeah!

Mix it up
I've made this twice. The first time was great. The second time was better! I Used all 4 oz of concentrate for a 5 gal corny keg and force carbed. The 2nd batch i made i replaced 1 pound of sugar with Brown sugar (using regular sugar for the rest of the required amount) It came out very good. Next time i will experiment with honey.

Amazing First Time Out!
We purchased the Gnome Draft Style Root Beer and a dedicated bucket etc. for the 12 year old and ran into problems. We didn't realize this would require yeast, so we gambled and purchased Fleishmann's Active Dry Yeast at the local grocery store and only used about a teaspoon. We also used 5 lbs of simple white cane sugar along with 12 ounces of Karo light corn syrup. Other than that, we followed the directions to produce 5 gallons of root beer. After bottling using 22 oz bottles we allowed it to rest for 6 days prior to refrigeration. It then refrigerated for nine days before we attempted to drink it. It produced a DARK caramel foam and delicious root beer! After I post this review, ordering two more bags! :)

Seems a little weak in taste
I used the whole package for 5 gallons. Added 2 lbs of sugar, 2 lbs of brown sugar and 1 lb of light Kayro syrup. 5 gallons of water. And added yeast. I put in brown 12 oz bottles. Make sure you put in the fridge after 2 or 3 days or your going to have some root beer bottle bombs on your hands and a mess to clean up. Maybe this batch will get better with time. Plenty of carbonation for sure.

According to the directions it requires yeast. What is the preferred yeast to use?
J O on Dec 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I keg my root beer and charge it with CO2 so I have never used yeast but I thought the package said use a champagne yeast. As a side note, charging root beer takes longer than charging beer.
Does gnome use artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives in making this extract?
F A on Dec 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Ingredients:
Water
Caramel color
Natural and artificial flavorings
Alcohol
Proplyne glycol
May contain sulfites
Are there recipe directions included with the packet? Several of the reviews have suggested recipes but why isn't there a recipe listed on the NB webpage as with all beers?
Steve G on Dec 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is a recipe on the package. This is just the root beer soda extract, not a kit put together by Northern Brewer. It requires added sugar, water, and also yeast if you plan on carbonating it in bottles.
Directions for yeast carbonation states this makes 2.5 gallons of root beer. However your website states it makes 5 to 10 gallons. Should I double the yeast and sugar for 5 gallons?
B E on Jun 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Chris,

Thanks for contacting us! I was able to find the directions that you're referring to. I would double the sugar, but you may not need need to double the yeast. Let me know if you have further questions!
We are wanting to make 5 gallons of soda syrup. Basically a bag-in-box set up. Does anyone know what the instructions would be for this?.
L A on Mar 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you're looking for a non-alcoholic rootbeer, this syrup can be mixed with water and kegged. If you're looking for a hard root-beer, you can follow a recipe similar to our "Bastard Stepson Rootbeer" kit
