How to Make Homemade Root Beer

If you are partial to root beer, then try making it at home. The recipe provided here will help you brew the perfect root beer that will taste just like store-bought root beer.


  • Baker’s yeast
  • Root beet extract
  • Sugar
  • Water


  1. Take a clean, dry bottle and place a funnel on its mouth. Pour through the funnel one cup of cane sugar. Then add ¼ teaspoon of baker’s yeast to the sugar.
  2. Replace the cap of the bottle and shake it well. After the sugar and the yeast have settled to the bottom of the bottle, replace the funnel on the mouth of the bottle and add one teaspoon of root beer extract to it.
  3. Now fill the bottle half with water. Shake the bottle again to mix all the ingredients inside. Now add more water right up to the brim of the bottle. Remove the funnel from the bottle and replace the cap. Turn the bottle upside down and shake the bottle again to mix the contents well.
  4. Set the bottle aside at room temperature for 3-4 days. By this time, the bottle will feel hard when you squeeze it.

Place the bottle in the refrigerator. Serve root beer chilled.
