Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The Crew and I wondered how this root beer would possibly have effervesce when there didn’t seem to be an ingredient to make it happen. But watching it as it sat in the sun, you could see the yeast at work! This was a fun, easy recipe to try. Definitely great for kids... of all ages. The root beer lovers around the table each gave it two thumbs up.

lukewarm water
3 t
root beer extract
1 t
