The kit has easy to follow instructions and makes delicious root beer.
Entomos
This had an obvious alcohol smell and taste, and we didn't feel right allowing him to drink it so my son was disappointed.
Justin
This kit was my daughter's favorite Christmas present - she couldn't wait to make a batch of her favorite beverage.

I bought this as a gift for my son. We haven't made the root beer yet, but we are sure looking forward to it. The package has a wonderful smell of root beer.

From the packaging, I expected there to be much more to it and its contents. Here is what you get:

One 2 oz bottle of "Rainbow Flavors" Homebrew root beer extract (readily available for just over six bucks elsewhere).
One packet of Red Star Pasteur Champagne yeast (readily available for under a dollar elsewhere).
One standard 3-inch funnel.
Four standard blank labels.
One photocopied sheet of paper with instructions (readily available all over the web).
The 5" tall cardboard container pictured above(from the rest of the contents, this must therefore be worth about 8 dollars)
Not included: bottles.

So buy this product if you really like the packaging. Otherwise, order it much cheaper from a local or web-based source.

I brew beer and have soda kegs for my homebrew. I thought that this kit would be fun for my kids and we could put it on tap in one of my corny kegs. The description says that it makes one-four gallons of root beer but the packaging and tiny kit that comes states that it makes 2 gallons of root beer so while this may be a fun kit for people that want to try their hand at doing this and re-purposing soda bottles it is way expensive for what you get which is a tiny bottle of extract and a small packet of champagne yeast. Much cheaper to go to your local homebrew store and pick up a large bottle of extract for five bucks. After reading the instructions I'm even further confused as they state that this kit only makes 4 liters of Root Beer which equals one gallon of root beer! So the Ad says up to 4 gallons, the packaging says 2 gallons and the instructions tell you how to make 1 gallon of root beer! Just so anyone considering this is aware, by using yeast to carbonate this is will end up with about 1% alcohol by volume so you may not even want to let your kids drink it! I overcame this by using CO2 to carbonate it but all in all this was a very disappointing purchase.

We had a great time making the root beer but the end result was an unpleasant flavor that really disappointed my two girls. Find a different kit by another company.

The "Product Features" for this product makes it seem like it comes with recycled bottles, which it definitely does not.
The kit is small and in my opinion, overpriced. It simply contains a small packet of yeast, some root beer extract, and some plain white blank office labels like you put on envelopes and can get at OfficeMax.

The root beer we made did come out excellent, however, for what's included this kit is definitely not worth the price.

Nothing in the product description on Amazon says it is fermented root beer, or that the result will contain alcohol. Nor do the instructions I have right in front of me. One must read reviews and comments, or do a lot of Google searching to find this out. I bought this kit at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and was going to start it going today. Had I not, on impulse, checked out these reviews, I would have produced alcoholic root beer unaware of what I was getting.

Even 1% alcohol is too much for some of us, to the extent that we use care with things like mouthwash and vanilla extract.

A product warning would have been appropriate.
