I am looking to make a root beer which is both healthy and (to some degree) tasty.
I have tried twice to make root beer using this recipe:
The first time was barely drink-able, I had let the ginger bug ferment too long I believe. (I don't drink, but I felt it was fairly alcoholic for a root beer).
The second time was OK, perhaps further iterations will improve but I did everything right as far as I could tell. I think it may be the recipe rather than the method.
Does anyone have a recipe that would make a good substitute? Or perhaps feel that this is a good recipe but that maybe I made some errors? That would be appreciated.
Ideally I would like to make a Doctor Pepper type recipe, but I am starting with root beer and working my way there.
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
