    G'day Gentlemen
    I wouldn't mind having a crack at an alcoholic sarsparilla or root beer.
    Has anyone done this? If so how did it go? What recipe did you use?
    I found this vague recipe on a British home brew website.
    4.75 litres of water
    1 cup of strong black tea
    2.5kg sugar
    citric acid (quantity ???)
    yeast nutrient (quantity ???)
    cider yeast 5 g
    Root Beer (Sarsparilla) Extract (quantity ???)
    I might give it a go.

    I don't generally rate their beers but a few years ago Grand Ridge brewery did a sarsBEERilla stout that was awesome. You may get some info direct if you e-mail them... May being the key word in that statement.

    I'll have a crack at it next week. From what I gather, the you ferment for between 24 and 36 hours only.
    :unsure: What could possibly go wrong???
