I love A & W Root Beer. It’s funny because I’m just a Dr. Pepper addict but I can’t really tell the difference in Dr. Pepper and Mr. Pibb. I truly cannot tell them apart. Mostly I drink Dr. Pepper because I drink the ones with real sugar instead of corn syrup and I’m not even sure Mr. Pibb has that version. So, I cannot tell the difference in Dr. Pepper or Mr. Pibb but it seems every single brand of root beer tastes different and there are only a couple that I like but I only love A & W brand.
Several years ago we decided we would make our own root beer and we did for a while but then we stopped. What we made was ok but it didn’t compare to A & W brand. Lately I’ve been reading more about making root beer and how to improve on what we were making. We had used plain kitchen yeast but I decided we needed to try different yeast so I ordered champagne yeast, ale yeast and wine yeast, all of which are used in various recipes for root beer . . one at a time . . not combined.
Today Vince was out doing his bargain hunting . . without me to hurry him along and he came across these root beer kits.
Amazon has it for $17.19. I don’t know if you can see it but Vince got it for $2.99. He bought . . several! 🙂
I believe we’ll be making lots of root beer!
