Rated 1 out of 5 by papafinn from failed first attempt I brewed the first batch of beer and went to the root beer stage I used brown sugar (it was an option ) as the directions stated and I only used 2 cups ( directions said 2 or 3 cups) because I did no want it too sweet , well it turned out sour and I tried to add sugar LOL and it looked like a Volcano ,so I am going to try a carbo drop and see If I can salvage the rest on my batch I have 9 bottles left,wish me luck

Rated 3 out of 5 by milesthedeputy from Interesting experiment I used my root beer kit and added the Classic American Light and an extra LBK to make hacked root beer. Great flavour, nice bite. Make sure to follow the instructions on the amount of sugar to add as I altered the amounts on my second brew with less that great results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Popajim from Perfect taste Taste great, perfect sweetness. I recommend dissolving the sugar before adding to the mixing vessel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goofey from Great taste !! 3rd batch I decided to add some vanilla, used 2 1/2 tbs and all I can say is it is so smooth and taste fantastic. With the 2nd batch did find the longer it sits the better it gets as well. Had one bottle that sat in the fridge a little over a month and it too was nice and smooth. That 3rd batch had 3 12 oz bottles after 5 days of carbonation and 1 day in the fridge and can only imagine how much better it is going to be the longer it sits in the fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rokitman from You'll LOVE This Root Beer! I was given a Hacked Rootbeer Kit for Christmas by my son. I had only brewed one other batch of Mr. Beer until then, from a new kit with the Classic American Light. I enjoyed it so much I thought about trying something different. The HRB was even easier to make than the CAL. Requiring the same fermenting time, but only 5 - 10 days in the bottle before you can chill them. There is one extra step that has to be taken. After the fermentation is complete, the wort is transferred to another 2 gallon keg and additional ingredients are added. White and brown sugar, root beer flavoring liquid and vanilla extract (optional). Once mixing is complete, you're free to bottle. 5 - 10 days later, they go in the fridge and they are ready to drink in another 3 - 5. I found the first couple bottles were a bit bold. A little bite of an aftertaste but definitely drinkable. After a week or so the flavor settled in was greatly improved. And no aftertaste. You can definitely taste the alcohol in this beverage and it doesn't take many to start feeling it. I used two cups of white sugar and two cups of brown and a tablespoon of vanilla extract. I found it a bit sweet but not overpowering. I'll probably reduce the white sugar to one cup next time. The only issue I found was a fairly good amount of sediment in the bottles. And if they get stirred a little too much while pouring, it adds a bitter flavor. I solved this by straining it through a piece of cheesecloth into the glass. Worked out fine. I may try to liquify the sugars before adding them to the next batch and see if that helps. Overall, I was VERY happy with this brew. Easy instructions and not too long of a waiting period. The taste was exceptional and very much like the old A&W root beer we had as kids. I highly recommend you try Hacked Root Beer for yourself. - Dean -

Rated 2 out of 5 by Walt_Felix from A bit of a disappointment. I was really looking forward to this batch but it just didn't live up to the expatiation. Started with a nice Root Beer aroma, but tasted like a bitter beer with a little Root Beer flavor. And the trub is awful so plan on pouring a little more than usual down the sink. I may have done something wrong so I'll give this one another shot, but if the next batch turns out the same, I will probably avoid this kit in the future.
