Rootbeer Ingredients for Flavoring

Rootbeer, as the name suggests, was originally made by fermenting roots into a health tonic. Steeped in the tradition of "small beers," these healthy quaffs were a staple in colonial times. Other small beers include ginger beer (now known as ginger ale), birch beer and sarsaparilla beer.

 

Once carbonated water was invented, it became more cost effective to simply add a flavored syrup extract in order to achieve the same flavor. Unfortunately, most of the nutritional benefit was also lost in that process. Recreate your own favorite rootbeer recipe by adding these flavorings to Kombucha, water kefir or jun for a healthier alternative to the mass produced options.

 

Historically, there were many different types of herbs and roots used to create the unique flavor. We keep it simple in this pack by providing the 4 basic flavorings that will yield a tasty brew. This recipe is intended as a guideline that may be personalized based on your taste preference.

 

Features

  • 1 packet of sassafras* (0.6oz ground)
  • 1 packet of sarsaparilla* (0.8oz cut and sifted)
  • 1 packet of wintergreen* (0.35 oz, cut and sifted)
  • 1 vanilla bean** (0.22oz)

* 100% organic
** 100% natural

Basic Rootbeer Flavoring Recipe

for each 16oz bottle us the below amount of flavoring - remember, a little bit goes a long way, so try this first, then dial up the different elements to find your unique rootbeer recipe!

  • 1/8 tsp sassafras
  • 1/8 tsp sarsaparilla
  • 1/8 th of vanilla bean (cut into eighths, no need to remove the seeds)
  • 1/4 tsp wintergreen

 

Combine all ingredients into a clean bottle. Fill with Kombucha and cap tightly. Allow to remain at room temperature for 24-48 hours, then taste and move to the fridge when it has the desired flavor.

 

The herbs and spices may be placed in a reusable tea bag to facilitate removal or simply strained. This step is important if intending to bottle age for longer periods to prevent over-bittering or off flavors.

 

For a "rootier" or earthier flavor, increase the amout of sassafras and sarsaparilla.

 

Sassafrass, since it is ground, will offer more intense flavor - increase 1/8 tsp at a time. Click "2x Sassafras" to purchase an extra packet of sassafras.

 

Our sarsaparilla bark is has a larger surface area so more may be added without adding as much intensity as the sassafras but still providing depth and flavor. Click "2x Sarsaparilla" to purchase an extra packet of sarsaparilla.

 

For a creamier flavor, increase the amount of wintergreen and vanilla bean.

 

Wintergreen is in the mint family and adds a coolness to the flavor that creates a smooth mouth feel to the brew. Double it to 1/2 teaspoon for additional creamy notes.   Click "2x Wintergreen" to purchase an extra packet of wintergreen.

 

Vanilla bean is the pod of an orchid and while it has become synonymous with "plain" it is subtle yet adds rich flavor. The key ingredient in a cream soda, upping the vanilla will also increase the creaminess of the flavor. Click "2x Vanilla Bean" to purchase an extra packet of vanilla beans.

 

Other ingredients to consider adding to your rootbeer blend include:

I love root beer, I love kombucha and had never thought of root beer flavored kombucha until I saw this on KK.  I used this flavoring as instructed on the packages and it is one of my new favorites.  I didn't change a thing. My sister is my taste tester and she loves it too.  I will be ordering this again!

I love Root beer and this makes great Root Beer Kombucha. I priced some of the ingredients and thought I wouldn't be able to make it. I checked here and was so relieved to see to see they had a flavoring pack.

Oh my gosh! I am so addicted to this flavor. I love my kombucha and I have been experimenting with flavors. This root beer flavor is the best! I absolutely cannot get enough of it. I may have to start another brewer. I am also very impressed with everything I have ordered from Kombucha Kamp! High quality! Thank you so much! Many Blessings!

This flavor combo is insanely delicious! I grew up drinking a clear soda called 'birch bark' and this brings be back to my childhood. My 13 year old daughter is always asking for it. Thanks Kombucha Momma for putting this delicious pack of flavors together!

WOW! Who knew after years of not being able to have root beer that a beginning brewer of kombucha could make it. Its all thanks to Hannah and team for their fabulous customer service assistance, her website and book. I highly, highly highly recommend this product and will be buying regularly as the family likes it too!

Some of the flavoring prep for applying the finishing touches of my KT and my H2O kefir has been completed for me. What a handy package-Rootbeer Flavoring 4 pack-containing medicinal herbs and roots! Tasting my beverages I became reminiscent of visiting Virginia City, NV, drinking sasparilla and relishing the occasion. Try this 4 pack and see where you travel!

I love love love this flavor! Since I am new to flavoring Kombucha, I wanted to start with something that was recommended and sold by Kombcha Kamp since I've had great experiences with all their products. My boyfriend and I fell in love the minute we opened our package and sniffed the contents. It smelled just like root beer! I made two bottles of root beer kombucha, and they had a nice, subtle root beer flavor. I might add just a little bit more of the flavorings in my next batch to make it more bold, and maybe I'll combine it with some of my homemade ice cream to make a "root beer" float! I'm looking forward to experimenting some more with these lovely flavors.

This Root beer flavoring is awesome! Really put a different twist on kombucha and our grandkids love it as they don't get to drink soda!!! Will definitely be getting more of this in the future! Thanks Hannah!

I was skeptical about whether or not this would really taste like rootbeer and it totally does!! It's delicious - seriously, what a great healthy alternative! Dont have to be a kid or have a sweet tooth to love it because the kombucha balances the flavor just as well as the sugar in rootbeer does, but much healthier.

I used this root beer flavor pack to make root beer flavored kefir water.  My kids and I loved it.  I used the recipe provided to flavor a half gallon container.  I added a little bit of honey for the fizz and let it do a second ferment.  Thanks Kombucha Kamp!
