home made root beer

Read a good book? Any topic is a good one. If it is about moonshine of other spirits, beer, or wine then that is a bonus.

I've made root beer before from extract. but a formula from scratch would be very cool.
I've been offered a 6 head soda fountian, I figure I can set up some for beer,some for pop and at least one for premixed rum & coke. fun for the whole family.

I make rootbeer and creamsoda from exstract myself.
I use 2liter bottles.
Never thought of using my 2gal cornys for that.
Excellent idea.
I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good
as they're going to feel all day.

Good fortune takes preparation.

No fun to make it from kits. You need some sassafras and sarsaparilla. Might be a bit involved to source the sassafras.
