Root Beer & Soda

Yes, you can make root beer and many other soft drink flavors at home! We use the highest quality rootbeer and soft drink extracts in our Root Beer Brewery which makes up to 4 gallons of root beer or other soft drinks. Natural carbonation will take about two weeks; if your rootbeer or soft drink becomes over carbonated you can burp the bottles by carefully opening the lid and letting the gas escape. Put the lid back on and place the bottle in the refrigerator. The cold will stop further gas production. You may need to reduce the amount of yeast used in your next batch. If your soft drink is not carbonated within 2 weeks of bottling you may have added the yeast while the soft drink was to hot. You can open each bottle and carefully add 3 or 4 grains of yeast. Close the bottle and leave them at room temperature for 1 more week. You may need to add more yeast in your next batch but never add more than 1/4 teaspoon of yeast regardless of the size of the batch being made. You will notice that when a fully carbonates bottle is cooled in the refrigerator; the amount of carbonation is reduced. This is caused by the fact that the colder a liquid is the more gas it can hold in suspension. Be sure that your plastic test bottle is very, very hard before refrigerating.
