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 just....so....FUN. 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.
