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.

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.

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!

Nailed it first time out!
We made the entire 4 oz packet in a 5 gallon corny. Used 1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla, 2lb white and 2lb brown sugar. 1lb Karo light syrup. Mixed it all and placed it in the keezer at 30 PSI for two days shaking every now and then. Very good flavor with a nice clean finish. I plan to keep one of these on tap all the time.
Gnome Draft very good!

I have been using this flavoring for the past couple years and it has been amazing and delicious every time

Now the kids have a brew to enjoy!
Made this with a reviewer's recipe of the whole 4 oz packet, 2 lbs sugar, 2 lbs brown sugar, & 1 lb light karo syrup. Kegged it at 35 psi for 24 hours. My kids love it. It will be a regular tap on our keezer.

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:
Caramel color
Natural and artificial flavorings
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

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
