Brew of the Barrens - The recipe

For the many who have asked about the recipe for the "Brew of the Barrens" homemade root beer we have been making at the market, here it is: Put 3.5 gallons of cold Glasgow Water Company water in a five gallon cooler. Add 6 cups of white sugar and stir it until fully dissolved. Add 2 ounces of root beer extract (it takes some research to find it, but it is available - Mc Cormick even has it in the spices area of larger grocery stores). Then add the secret ingredient, four pounds of dry ice from Glasgow Ice Company! This puts on the big show with all of the smoke and fog coming off of the mixture...put the top on the cooler LOOSELY and let the brew work for about an hour, stirring occasionally to keep it all going. On the other hand, you could just keep coming back to the Bounty of the Barrens Market to get your local root beer fix!
