i mixed this up in my seltzer bottle deal like a week ago according to the recipe on the bottle, which was a whole of math going from making 5 gallons with a whole bottle to the 1 quart of my bottle. it ended up as around 1/8 tsp of extract in there, which seems like barely anything, but hey, that is what they called for, so that is how i will try it. i did not carbonate it until now but somehow it was not actually carbonated when i put it into my mug. oh well, my fault, so i won’t count that against them.
i do like the bottle, it is fun. for some reason, extract bottles seem to be more generic, all of the flavors with very similar labels and such. i appreciate that they at least put in the effort to make this one unique.
the taste here is just ok. i really think it needs more extract, but i followed the recipe quite precisely so this is how they want it. it tastes like root beer, which in the end, is what an extract is supposed to do, right? but as i am judging it against the real root beer soda world, that is not quite good enough. i also think their sugar amount suggestion is a bit too high. i will have to try making a cake or cupcakes or something with this at a later point and test that aspect. maybe pancakes, i make a lot of pancakes… hhhmmmm
Ingredients:caramel color, propylene glycol, water, phosphoric acid, natural and artificial flavor, sodium benzoate (as preservative)
