We thought it was terribly exciting, meaning lots of shrieking and dancing around, to watch the dark root beer bubble and pop while the billowy white fog spilled from the container.

The excitement over homemade root beer must span the generations because my kids go crazy for this stuff.

You should have seen their reactions when we first made it. They’d never really been around dry ice and had no idea what would happen when it was carefully added to the sweet root beer mixture.

His feelings about this homemade root beer? “Man, this is really, really good root beer.” I’ll take that.

A lot depends, of course, on what you use for extract. I’ve learned my lesson over the years that not all root beer extracts are created equal.

I won’t dissuade you from using widely-recognized brands out there, but I will tell you that my favorite of all favorites is Zatarains root beer extract. It is extremely delicious and has a very intense but well-balanced root beer flavor.

While homemade root beer is ridiculously easy and food-grade dry ice is completely safe to drink once it is melted, please, please keep in mind that there are definitely precautions to take when using dry ice.

I’ve listed a few in the notes of the recipe and there is a lot of helpful information online.

Make the root beer in a large, ventilated room or outside so the carbon dioxide doesn’t build up as it works its magic.

Also, remember that dry ice evaporates quickly (a 5- to 10-pound block can evaporate within 24 hours; learned that the hard way when I opened my freezer and my stash of dry ice was just empty plastic bags!) so try to buy just the amount you need when you know you’ll use it quickly. <-speaking of that, it’s best to store dry ice in a styrofoam cooler or container well-wrapped to keep it cold longer, instead of in a commercial freezer since it’s so cold and can sometimes cause the internal thermostat to shut off.

I know, I know, the precautions are a little boring but it’s good to get them out of the way; don’t let them prevent you from trying this!
