Homemade Root Beer

4 gallons water
4 1/2 lbs. sugar
1 bottle root beer extract
5 lbs. dry ice

Add cold water to the 4 gallon mark. Next add sugar and root beer extract. Stir with a long handled spoon. Add dry ice. Let stand 30-40 minutes. Add regular ice to make it cold. This will make a full 5 gallon jug.

My favorite part of the homemade root beer is when you let the root beer sit for a few hours or over night, and all the dry ice falls to the bottom and ends up making a slush at the bottom of the jug. Yummy!
