      Title: Chuck's homemade ozark rootbeer (15 gal recipe)
 Categories: Polkadot, Faylen, Beverages, Brewing
      Yield: 15 Gallons
 
      2 oz Birch Beer Extract
     10 oz Root Beer Extract
      1 lb Honey
      1 c  Blackstrap Molasses
      1 c  Grade B Maple Syrup
      1    Gal Sugar (approx 8 lb)
           -Directions:
 
  Mix all ingredients in a keg, add water to fill keg, carbonate,
  drink. Some comments regarding the recipe:
  
  I thought the molasses taste was a bit harsh, I will try regular
  molasses next time and perhaps use a little less as well.
  
  I will try substituting 2 oz of sasparilla extract for 2 oz of the
  rootbeer extract.
  
  In any case, you can mix the ingredients to your taste.
  
  This recipe produces a strong tasting rootbeer with about half the
  sweetness of most commercial rootbeers (warning: you will want to
  clean your draft lines after dispensing this root beer, it leaves a
  flavor behind). It was extremely popular with the underage college
  crowd because the rootbeer was served just like draft beer.
  
  You can obtain the extracts in 2 oz bottles at most homebrewing
  shops. In addition, you can buy bulk extracts through restaurant
  suppliers, the one brand I know of is 'Universal'.
  
  While I artifically carbonated my rootbeer (for both legal & practical
  reasons) you could ferment it to get carbonation. There was an
  alcoholic rootbeer at the Great American Beer Festival, I talked with
  the brewmaster who made it, and it is similar to my recipe, but with
  the addition of a substantial amount of malt extract to increase the
  fermentables. His rootbeer was in the 6% alcohol by weight range, and
  tasted very good on it's own, but didn't go well with drinking lots
  of regular beer.
