My Mom used to make root beer in a huge crock. I had a job of sucking on a tube to syphon the root beer and fill bottles. I used to love it and drank lots of it. I haven't made this yet but have bought the extract to try it when I get a big enough jar.


  • Yield: 1 Batch
  • 1 tsp. Dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup Water, warm
  • 2 cups Sugar, granulated
  • 1 qt. Water, hot (4 cups)
  • 4 tsp. Root beer extract


  • Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water.
  • Dissolve sugar in 1 quart hot water.
  • Mix together dissolved yeast, sugar and root beer extract in gallon jar.
  • Fill jar with warm water and stir until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Cover jar.
  • Set in warm sun for four hours.
  • The root beer will be ready to drink the next day.
  • Chill before serving.
