Are you a root beer lover? Did you know you can make your own homemade root beer? Well, the Amish did! Here's a fun root beer recipe straight from the Pennsylvania Dutch country for you to try in your own kitchen. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 hours

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put all the ingredients into a gallon container to a tight-fitting lid. Fill it about half full with warm water. Shake to combine.

What a fun project, and so delicious, too! #yum
I made this two days ago. It was delicious with vanilla ice cream. However, tried another root beer float the next day and the root beer tasted off, like a chemical taste. Does anybody know how long this recipe keeps???
Brilliant idea...

Do you sell any brand of Amish root beer online? It would be great to get a root beer without the junk High Fructose Corn Syrup and sugar instead. Also, being with only a small amount of ingredients.
