I love Root Beer, it's an awesome beverage but the bad thing is, we don't have it in australia, but luckily with this recipe, they won't need to import any root beer in australia.

the only accurate measurements are one cup of sugar and one lemon, the rest is pretty useless unless you want to do a ton of trial and error.

Ok soooooo. This makes a 2l??? And when you say "one ginger root" (for example) does that mean one pound? One ounce? One teaspoon? One what??? This recipie is quite inaccurate please add specific measurements otherwise this is pretty much an instruct able fail lol thanks for the list of necessary roots though

Will it be fizzy or do you have to add the carbonation?

Where did you get this recipe? I've been trying to find a recipe that didn't use concentrate for days! How does it taste? What is the volume of the batch made from these proportions?
