“This Root beer is bound to be a hit at any gathering. It is very easy, ice cold and yummy. Use a large insulated drink cooler to brew it in, and everyone can help themselves using the spigot. This is best to do outdoors or place the cooler in the kitchen sink as it brews. Dry ice can be dangerous. Be sure to use gloves when handling. Do not allow children to handle the dry ice.” - by LUVNGRAMS
Original recipe yields 4 gallons
- In a large cooler, mix together the sugar and water, stirring to dissolve sugar completely. Stir in the root beer extract. Carefully place the dry ice into the cooler, and cover loosely with the lid. Do not secure the lid, as pressure may build up.
- Let the mixture brew for about an hour before serving. Leftover root beer can be stored in one gallon milk jugs.

"I rated this 2 stars for 2 reasons, 1 is that the mesurement of the extract is subject to the brand used, some extracts like the brand HOMEBREW only use 4 tablespoons for 4 to 5 gallons water, and the..." See more 2nd is for the personal reason that extract = cheat, no knocks intended there just a personal thing, but you may want to tell us want brand to use."
