root beer


S
wiggin' stuff, homemade sass'prilla as it were, some brown sugar root beer.



These bottles are sitting near the heater to keep somewhere between 64 and 80 degrees F.



They are not ready yet. We will keep you posted. Remember, I made Ginger Beer a couple of times before, to much acclaim.

Harmony said...

I can't wait to see/hear how it turns out...no doubt it will be awesome!

Joy said...

You must stay in the kitchen most of the time! I know you get out some since we've seen videos and pictures, but you do a lot of cooking!

Anette said...

That looks very cool! How long do they take to get ready?

ap said...

Chef E said...

My mom made that and ginger beer when I was growing up, I miss that, and would like a bottle! I will trade you for a ticket to go to he restaurant show in NYC???

Micky-T said...

We made root beer growing up too. I just loved using the old bottle capper.

That actually has some alcohol in it, doesn't it? Never made it my self- tried beer, and ended up with 5 gallons of malt vingar...

maggie: gotta give my little guy some memoeries

harmony: You and me both

joy: well there are 3 meals in every day so I dont show you how often I am 'really' cooking

anette: 2 days to 3 weeks - quicker in warmer weather

ap: I guess you could use stevia but I dont know if it reacts with the yeast

chef e: sounds like a good trade...

micky-T: these are screw top...geez mondernity...

buff: a a teeny tiny amount - but you could let it sit longer and amp it up a bit.

Wow, I can't believe you're making your own root beer. How frikkin' cool are you??

urban vegan said...

How cool are you?

My grandmother used to make homemade root beer and also ginger beer. Can't wait to see how yours turns out.

Joy said...

I suspected that, Doggy. ;-)

doggybloggy said...

starrlife: this is my first time with root beer - we shall see.

tavolini: well I do love me some ginger beer - hopefully this comes out as good.

5 star foodie: it really is pretty easy...

TK: you must be a friggin'mind reader

jesse: I am trying to keep up with a 10 year old so the bar is raised pretty high

UrbanVegan: the ginger beer I made before came out great so I have high hopes for this

joy: suspected what? you are so cryptic lately...are these Bernice Moments?

Marjie said...

I love sarsaparilla. Hard to find on the east coast. Have you ever tried birch beer? Another excellent beverage.

The Blonde Duck said...

Is there anything you won't try?

doggybloggy said...

marjie: there is some pennsylvannia brand of birch beer that I can find every now and again

TBD: no bungee jumping for me...

Jill said...

I served root beer floats for dessert the other day to 20 guests and you would have thought I had given them all a youth elixir! Everyone was happily nostalgiclly surprised.

Jeanne said...

You do know that you can buy this stuff, right? Ready made?

doggybloggy said...

jill: there is something about the rootbeer float - it is a comfort food.

jeanne: you can say that about all kinds of things - its the process we like.

kang at LE said...

really? is that what root beer is made from brown sugar?

lisaiscooking said...

I read about making root beer in Saveur a couple years ago. Sounds great. Can't wait to hear how delicious yours is.

Maggie said...

Homemade root beer floats, mmmmmm!! Are you making ice cream next?

Joy said...

I suspected that about the cooking! ;-)

No, not Bernice moments with the cryptic comments. I probably think you can read my mind since you often do.

Joy said...

And my follow-up comments generally carry on what we've already written to each other without regard to all the other comments you are also responding to. Or maybe I know how well you multi-task. Yeah, that's it.

Have ADD? Yes, I do.
