recipe from: Lisa

1 bottle root beer extract
5 gallons fresh water, slightly lukewarm
4 pounds granulated sugar

In extremely hot weather use one-half cake of Yeast.

Dissolve the sugar in the water, add the extract, then the Yeast thoroughly dissolved in a little water, mix well and bottle immediately, using strong bottles or jugs, and tie the corks in securely.

Set in a warm place thirty-six to forty-eight hours; in cold weather, a little longer.

Then remove to cellar or other place of even temperature, but do not put it on ice until a few hours before using.
