Homemade Rootbeer

Pin It
There is just something about a good batch of homemade rootbeer.
The taste is great but making it is just as much fun.
Dry ice is I mean LOOK at all that steam, smoke, whatever. Yeah, the boys had a great time too.
So here is the recipe I used....
1 bottle rootbeer extract
5 pounds sugar
5 gallons water
5 pounds dry ice.
Mix it together and let it 'cook' for a couple of hours. Careful not to spill any, all that sugar makes it very sticky. Doing it with little boys clamoring about wiggling fingers through the steam is a must!
What a fun, simply, family activity.

  2. I am looking at using this for a Church Activity. How much would you imagine 1 recipe of this would serve.... 30 people????

    1. It makes roughly 5 gallons. That is 80 8oz (1 cup) servings but folks I know love homemade rootbeer and it is a treat they rarely get. What size are your cups? A solo brand cup is usually 12-16 oz so that would give you closer to 40 servings= no seconds. I would double the recipe just in case. You can still use the 10 gal cooler but double the recipe and fill 'er up! Have fun.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you think. I love to hear your thoughts and feelings so go ahead INSPIRE ME!
