This hot weather is reminding me of the days of yore when my high school boyfriend's parents decided they were going to brew their own root beer. Like most of their half-baked DIY schemes, it was a huge flop. Shell shocked after that fiasco, as well as a subsequent bad break-up, I never thought I'd consider trying my own home brew. Times have changed. I'm ready to DIY this one from Epicurious.com.

1/4 teaspoon yeast (whatever kind you have in your kitchen)
2-liter bottle or growler jug (half gallon glass jug)
