Fermentap Root Beer Formula 1

This is one of our favorite root beer blends. It has a great creaminess that is almost impossible to find in the stores.

Instructions for bottling

 • 3 lbs of Wildflower Honey

• 2 lbs Cane Sugar

• 1 Packet Dry Champagne Yeast

1)You will need 2 gallons of water heated to between 140–160˚. Hot water from the tap works.

2)Add Honey, Sugar and Soda Extract to the kettle and mix thoroughly. Allow mixture to stand for 15 minutes.

3)Add 3 gallons of cold water and mix again. Take a temperature reading. If the temperature has dropped below 100˚ proceed to step 4, if not, additional cooling time is necessary. You will kill the yeast cells if you add them at a temperature in excess of 100˚ or more.

4)Add 5 grams of champagne yeast and mix again.

5)Bottle soda and then allow the bottles to stand at room temperature for one day.

6)Open one bottle everyday thereafter to test for carbonation. When desired carbonation has been reached move ALL bottles into refrigeration. The cold will stop the yeast activity. Bottles left out at room temperature will most likely explode as the yeast continues to consume sugar and produce CO2

Kegging Rootbeer:

5)Please keep in mind when kegging soda you should have a special keg for soda only, as soda contaminates the your lines and gaskets, causing beer to have an unmistakable soda flavor.
