Another Goal Complete: Root Beer

Last weekend Aaron and I tried making a batch of root beer and ginger ale. Both were semi successful and semi failures. The root beer taste great but I let the yeast sit out too long before mixing it in. So, the root beer did not carbonate. The ginger ale carbonate up very nicely but it has a funny taste. I'm not he biggest fan of the recipe. It has a nice ginger taste, but the lemon added is over powering. I think next time I would reduce the lemon amount and only add the juice, not the entire lemon.

This coming weekend we are planning on making another batch of root beer. Hopefully we will have some to bring home while visiting family. Pictures will be posted soon.
