Last year the con suite or hospitality room at OSFest featured a keg of 1919 Root Beer. It seemed to be so popular that one of Omaha's more popular Brewmeisters decided to rise to the challenge of preparing home-brewed root beer for OSFest 2. He promises that it will be ready on schedule and tapped shortly after opening ceremonies on Friday night.
Yet it was not without its trials and tribulations. The first batch brewed up was turned into a Root Beer Bomb when a hose connection failed during pressurization. But it was not a total loss; important lessons were learned from that serendipitous mistake. Lessons that he is now willing to share with you.
Check out the “Lessons I learned from home-brewing Root Beer” at www.osfes.org/HomeBrewLessons.htm. Then pass these on to all your friends that they may avoid the same misfortune as our Brewmeister. May he ferment in peace!
