Homemade Rootbeer

Recipe courtesy of Allrecipes
Modified Slightly


Makes approximately 30 servings
Recipe can be doubled

1 gallon drinking water
2 liters seltzer water
3 - 3 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 - 2 ounces Root Beer Concentrate
(I used McCormick)
2 1/2 lbs of dry ice

Over medium heat, dissolve sugar in 1/2 gallon of water.

In a large cooler, mix together the sugar water, seltzer water, and remaining drinking water. Stir in the root beer extract. Carefully place the dry ice into the cooler, and cover loosely with the lid. Do not secure the lid, as pressure may build up.

Let the mixture brew for about an half-hour before serving.

I LOVE home made rootbeer! (At least when it is made without yeast, can't stand it with yeast.)
