As you probably know, getting real beer and beer bottles in Kenya shouldn't be a problem. Tusker Beer is world famous as a decent lager. I don't drink so I can sympathize with your predicament. Non-co ...

I've tried a lot of root beer, and Barqs has to be down there with the worst. It's about as far from an original brewed root beer as you can get. But then some people actually ingest processed cheese ...

Both methyl salicylate (oil of wintergreen) and propylene glycol are fairly polar molecules and miscible with water (the latter more so of course). Just squirting a bit should be good, especially if t ...

What you could do if you are using glass is to pour into at least one plastic bottle to use as a check for carbonation.

I managed to find some little 7 ounce glass bottles that I can check without ...

You're right about the ale yeast. Mine precipitates to a sediment at the bottom of the bottle... kind of a thin layer of yeast snow. I'm sure kids might think it was icky, but if you pour the root bee ...

You can't really heat the carbonated root beer or you will drive off the CO2, defeating your purpose. You might be able to open the bottles, filter, and re-bottle. But it's easier just to make what yo ...

Your bottle of root beer probably has less alcohol than a ripe banana or a couple slices of yeast-risen bread. You'd have to really drown in the stuff to get any kind of high. The yeast don't get the ...

Make sure it's bottles that can withstand pressure. The milk bottle may not work since the lids aren't tight. Soda bottles are best. Don't use plain water bottles.
Brew shops usually have glass beer ...

If you've made it by forced carbonation, then you'll probably lose some carbonation in the transfer. I'd think it wouldn't be too bad though.

When I used yucca, I think it made my root beer smell and taste kind of nasty. It could have been another cause, but it was probably the yucca root. It may have been old or bad, but it didn't look tha ...

No, I think forced carbonation is OK. Yeast can be a pain. It's the flavoring that is important. Your scale sounds pretty big though!

Glad you're here TechGnome.

BTW, what kind of yeast do you use?

My guess is that if it is for free personal consumption, you can make as much root beer as you want. There shouldn't be a limit any more than the number of cakes you bake or steaks you barbeque in a y ...

There are three factors in how a solid dissolves.
1. Particle size. Small crystals dissolve faster and more easily than big particles.
2. Contact and distribution of the particles in the water. If t ...

I think the problem with the boiling is not the loss of any of the flavor or scent of the roots. It's the loss of oxygen from the water. Yeast needs oxygen as much as we do, and when the water is boil ...
