We used this to make a rootbeer cake, frosting & cookies, they turned out great so I just had to get my own bottle.

You all must look at this as an ingredient, just like salt or flour. It is a flavoring product and if you work up a recipe that includes this product, it can make a very acclaimed product. I sell the Root Beer and it is and always has been fantastic.

The best rootbeer loved by all who had it!!
We used this and mixed the sugars, per some reviews we read, we used honey, brown sugar, and white sugar. I don't even like root beer usually, it is my last choice as a soda. I will even choose water over it, but this is delicious, old fashioned and you know exactly what is in it unlike commercial soda! Will make it all the time for people who won't want to drink beer and have it in our 5 tap dispenser.

Come on folks-- Dising this is like saying that you do not like the vanilla in your cookies. You can use this as a fantastic INGREDIENT to make your own recipe. What you add to the recipe is what makes it great. Do some research on Root Beer and you will be very happy.

Good flavor, no fizz
Good flavor, no fizz. I made this with the kids the other day. They were very excited. It took about 4 days for the bottles to be nice and firm. When I opened one, I heard the realease of air I was looking for, but there was very little head when I poured a glass. The whole family tried a drink, and it was closer to the flavor of rootbeer I remember having as a kid. I will try this again to see if I did something wrong with the carbonation though.

good strong stuff
I use this with a two litre bottle and a little yeast. I set it on the counter for about three days until I cannot press the sides of the bottle in with my fingers.The flavor is exactly like those root beer barrels' hard candies.

Good for us older folk
If you are looking for the new, sweeter tasting style of root beer, this is not it. This product is truly very similar to the old fashion root beer with a sarsaparilla finish. My only downfall with this beer is that the extract is very potent and overpowers everything. We ended up using 5lbs of sugar to temper it.

W H on Aug 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Are you looking for the ingredients of the extract or the additions to the extract to make the finished soda?
First let me say I'm brand new to home brewing. That being said, how long does it take to 'brew' a batch of this root beer? Also, would it be a good test run at $8 rather than $40+ for beer extracts to get used to the process? Thanks, Mike
B O on May 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The root beer would be ready very quickly, though I don't believe it would be a good test run for beer. The process isn't all that similar and the root beer will leave a scent in any plastic items it comes in contact with. I would try a 1 gallon beer kit if you were looking to give beer brewing a shot. It's the same process just scaled down.
