The idea of having a dedicated keg of rootbeer keeps coming up for me. I have glanced at the kits, but would like to find a tried and true recipe to kick it off right with. I know someone on here is bound to have what I am looking for. Thanks in advance. I know it's not excactly a beer recipe but it does have beer in it's name and I didn't know where else to post it.

I use the Zatarains root beer extract, which I order right from them by the case of 12 bottles. Each bottle makes 5gal. I make about a batch a month. My kids and all the neighborhood kids love it, especially when it comes out of the kegerator right next to what the daddies are drinking.https://shop.zatarains.com/zatarains%C2%AE-root-beer-extract-p-1586.htmlFrom there I add 2# of dark brown sugar and 48 packets of Splenda. and top up to 5gal, shake, carb, chill and enjoy.After experimenting with the sweetening over several bathes I've arrived at this mix to balance the mouthfeel and sweetness. If it was all sugar it is way to syrupy for me. The splenda thins out the brown sugar without loosing overall sweetness.
