The first batch I made, I followed all the instructions and set the bottles on the kitchen counter to ferment. Less than 24 hours later the bottles were firm to the touch. Since the instructions said it could take 1-3 days, I was somewhat concerned with the short fermentation time, so I only put two of the four bottles in the fridge. I left the other two out for two full days, despite the firmness of the bottle. After letting the root beer chill in the fridge for a day, I tried it. As I suspected the first bottles were a little flat. The great thing about yeast carbonation is that the yeast are still alive in the bottle. All I had to do was let those bottles rest at room temperature for another day and the yeast woke right back up and kept on carbonating. Even in the refrigerator, the yeast are still working, just a lot slower. Once the root beer is carbonated, it never goes flat until the yeast completely run out of sugar to eat!
The first batch I found to have a nice creamy, but overly sweet flavor. It was still very good compared to most store brands. I find that I prefer the extra bite that a strongly carbonated beverage gives, so a little extra time fermenting worked well for me.
The second batch I adjusted the recipe just a smidge. The included recipe calls for 2 cups of regular sugar and 1 cup of dark brown sugar.Read more ›
UPDATE 3/31/12 well I tried another bottle 36 hours after bottling and that tasted much better then the first one and was very well carbonated.
I checked the bottles each day and found they were complete after about 4 days. The outcome of the fermentation was 4 bottles of well carbonated root beer. I put it in the refridgerator as directed for a couple of days and gave it a taste. The flavor is not bad, but far from the best root beer I've ever had. The flavor is border line medicinal, which is probably the heavy licorise flavor that I don't like. Other people that have tried it agree that it "isn't bad" but not great.
In the end, for the price, the experience is worthwhile even if the output is not perfect. I'd rather go buy a case of good root beer or 5 growlers of Bavarian Root Beer that tastes really good for the same price.
The kit includes enough material for 2 batches, although you need to reuse the bottles, tops, and seals. I may see about adding some additional flavoring to help offset the licorise.
