Those home beer brewing kits we've been eying up are slightly intimidating, but we still feel compelled to give them a try. We think we'll start with an easier brew: root beer. The Root Beer Brewing Kit ($27) comes with everything we need to yield 2 gallons of the sweet stuff (well, you supply your own sugar). And the best part is...no waiting! Our homemade root beer will be ready in three days. If we're feeling generous, we'll share some with you.
