    | 1. Use the funnel to pour the sugar in the bottle. | 2. Add the yeast. | 3. Toss the sugar and yeast around in the bottle so it mixes well. Just swish it around, don't shake it violently. Make it so there is a little depression in the center of the dry mixture. | 4. Add the root beer extract via the funnel. | 5. Add some of the water by pouring it over the tablespoon so get the extract residue into the bottle. | 6. Fill up the bottle about half way with some more water. | 7. Put the cover on the bottle and GENTLY swish to get the sugar/yeast mixture slightly dissolved. | 8. Add the rest of the water to about 1 to 1-1/2 inches from the top, then cap this TIGHTLY. | 9. Let stand in a cool place (65 to 72 degrees F) for three to four days. | 10. Do not shake the bottle or move it around unnecessarily. Leave it be. | 11. After about 24 hours of brewing itself, the bottle will start to feel hard as the pressure builds. | 12. After three/four days, the bottle should be very hard -- resist the urge to shake it up or open it, you will ruin your root beer. Place in refrigerator overnight. This arrests the yeast action. | 13. After chilling, decant into a glass and enjoy. | 14. Note: There will be leftover yeast in some sludge at the bottom of the bottle. Be careful decanting as you get to bottom of the bottle. That yeast will be skunky. | 15. Another note: The yeast is still working! Drink this up right away, keep it chilled. | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
