Who wants real root beer!!!!! I do! I do! Great to blow people away at the family reunion or picnic of your supreme organic & kitchen mastery . Root beer floats for dessert?…..
Handmade Root Beer in 24 hrs. Makes 1 gallon
1 tsp. dry yeast
1 Cup lukewarm water
2 Cups organic sugar or regular is fine
5 tsp. organic root beer extract ( other extracts are good, organic is the best that way you insure that no harmful chemical were used to get the extract)
1) Dissolve the yeast in the one cup of lukewarm water. and let it stand for 5 mins.
2) Combine sugar, and extract and add it to the yeast mixture. Pour combined mixture into a gallon jug glass or plastic ( I prefer glass so you can reuse the jug for next time and it is better for the next step). Then fill the gallon jug within 1 inch of the top. Add dried raisins for a deeper flavor .
3) Cover the jar and set in the sun for 3 hours. Refrigerate over night. Enjoy the next day!
