Step 1: Place funnel in bottle Place the funnel in the top of the bottle. Tip Make sure the bottle is clean before using. Step 2: Pour sugar Pour the sugar through the funnel into the bottle. Step 3: Add yeast Add the yeast to the sugar and shake the bottle to thoroughly mix the sugar and yeast together. Step 4: Add root beer extract Add one tablespoon of root beer extract to the mixture. Tip Swirl the bottle to make the sugar and yeast mixture concave, making a little bowl to catch the root beer extract. Step 5: Add water Add cold water through the funnel until the bottle is half way full. Step 6: Shake Swirl the mixture around until the sugar and yeast are dissolved. Step 7: Add water Add more cold water, leaving 1 to 2 inches from the top of the bottle empty. Put the cap on tightly and gently swirl and tip the container until everything's thoroughly mixed. Step 8: Let sit Let the mixture sit at room temperature for 2 to 4 days. When the bottle hardens from the gas build-up inside, it is time to put it in the refrigerator. Tip Over carbonating the root beer can cause the bottle to explode. Step 9: Open and enjoy Slowly unscrew the cap and enjoy. The root beer will have negligible alcohol content, but not enough to get anyone drunk. Did You Know?
