ok so i posted this in the "forum index" i believe so let me try here - oh the extract i refer to is hoptech #1:
hello to all - first post here - at home (arbutus, md) : third attempt at making root beer.
i grew up loving Frosty root beer (where can i get some?). recently, after a long sabatical, i tried "Natural Brew" from the grocery store and loved it. then my store stopped carring it . in searching the internet to try to buy it myself i discovered "hop tech", etal and home brewing (making) of root beer. so i bought some [url "http://hoptech.com/cart/cart.php?target=product&product id=16163&catogory id=264"]extract[/url], had some white sugar at home, cleaned ah jug and used some yeast from a pizza mix (ok, stop laughing) and made ah batch. i guess it sat for 4 days and i tried it - wasn't too bad but did have a undesirable after taste - i guess one could say it didn't "finish well". my 2nd batch prepared the same way except the substitution of 1/2c brown sugar for 1/2 c wht.,
some indian sasparella - boiled for a while and a few days longer sitting produced something slightly worst. now i am making my third batch the same as the first with ah bit more yeast and ah bit less sugar. just a little of each and will let it sit 7 days maybe 5 fer sure. so to my question about yeast - is the pizza dough yeast causing the after taste? what am i doing wrong? how can i make decent to good to great root beer? help me.
