1 bottle Schilling's Root Beer Extract
5 lbs. granulated Sugar or 1 lb brown sugar & 4 lbs. granulated sugar
5 gal. water
5 to 7 lbs. Dry Ice

In a container that holds at least 7 gals. with a lid. Pour 2 gals. hot tap water add sugar and dissolve. Add root beer extract, rinse bottle add to container until bottle is clear. Add 3 gals. cold tap water stirring as you go. Break dry ice into chunks and add 2 or 3 pieces at a time, put lid on tight to build pressure to infuse root beer with CO2. as bubbling slows add more dry ice until all has been used. Note - The tighter the lid on container the faster the infusion of CO2. It will blow lid off, if you mix this in a completely tight container. USE CAUTION WHEN HANDLING DRY ICE. Freeze burns can result. Use a used soda bottle for leftovers if any, to keep from going flat. Can use more dry ice if gone flat.

Preparation Time:
20 to 30 mins.
