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.

Oh Marlene, such memories this brought flooding back. My grandparents made rootbeer all the time. I never knew it was so easy. I just may have to try this.
