Chuck's Homemade Ozark Rootbeer

Classification: root beer

Source: Chuck Cox (bose!chuck@uunet.UU.NET) Issue #338, 1/9/90

I thought the molasses taste was a bit harsh and will try either regular molasses, or use less. I will also try substituting 2 ounces of sarsaparilla extract for 2 ounces of the rootbeer extract. This recipe makes a strong tasting rootbeer with about half the sweetness of commercial rootbeers. This was made with artificial carbonation, but it could be adapted to make alcoholic rootbeer by substituting malt extract for some of the sugar.



This recipe makes 15 gallons. Mix all ingredients in a standard keg. Add water to fill keg. Carbonate. Drink.
