      Title: Root beer
 Categories: Beverages
      Yield: 24 Servings
      5 qt Water
    1/2 oz Burdock root, dried
    1/2 oz Sarsaparilla root, dried
    1/2 oz Spikenard root, dried
    1/8 ts Yeast, granulated
    1/4 oz Hops
    1/2 oz Yellow dock root, dried
    1/2 oz Sassafras root, dried
  1 1/2 c  Sugar
  Simmer herbs in water for 30 minutes. Add sugar, stir to dissolve, and
  strain into a crock. Cool to lukewarm, add yeast, and stir well. Cover
  crock and leave to ferment for about an hour. Bottle as described in
  Soft Drink Tips and store in a cool place. Makes about one gallon.
  *** Notes included with the recipe:  "Root beer extracts, usually in
  an amount suitable for five gallons of beverage, are available from
  Hires, Schilling, and other herb and spice purveyors. These yield a
  drink that's very close in flavor to commercial root beers. Making
  your own infusions, however, allows for experimentation and a
  distinctive 'house' brew. Ours is less sweet than most."
