Swirl the sugar/yeast mixture in the bottom to make

it concave

(to catch the extract).


Adding the root beer extract l.jpg

Adding the root beer extract

Add with funnel: 1 Tbl of root beer extracton top of the dry sugar


Mixing in the extract l.jpg

Mixing in the extract

The extract sticks to the sugar which will help dissolve the extract in the next steps.


Adding in the water l.jpg

Adding in the water

Half fill the bottle with fresh cool tap water (the less chlorine, the better).  Rinse in the extract which sticks to the tablespoon and funnel. Swirl to dissolve the ingredients.

Fill up to the neck of the bottle with fresh cool tap water,leaving about an inch of head space, securely screw cap down to seal. Invert repeatedly to thoroughly dissolve.


Storage and allowing root beer to work l.jpg

Storage and allowing root beer to work.

  • Place at room temperature about three to four days until the bottle feels hard to a forceful squeeze.

  • Move to a cool place

  • (below 65 F).

  • Refrigerate overnight to thoroughly chill before serving.

  • Crack the lid of the thoroughly chilled root beer just a little to release the pressure slowly.


Final tips l.jpg

Final Tips

  • NOTE: Do not leave the finished root beer in a warm place once the bottle feels hard.

  • After a couple weeks or so at room temperature, especially in the summer when the temperature is high, enough pressure may build up to explode the bottle!

  • There is no danger of this if the finished root beer is refrigerated.

  • Refrigerate overnight before opening.
