Experiment #1

I bought 8 bottles of Grolsch, but only managed to drink two before wanting to try my first root beer batch.

1 qt water
2 Tbsp sassafras
1/2 tsp licorice root
40 drops burdock tincture (courtesy of Eileen)
1/3 cup sugar
1/32 tsp champagne yeast

Unfortunately, the first two bottles, while having a good traditional root beer flavor, never got fizzy. I'm now using a fresh package of champagne yeast.
