I made root beer from roots. Lots of fun. Anyway, does sassafras or sasparilla roots, or burdock root help in head retention? Or is yucca root the main help?
All of the above, plus bay leaves, orange peel , and some hops were in the recipe. But, of course, sassafras root bark (cut and sifted) was the main player.
Do hops aid in head retention? How about any of these roots. Yucca root is supposed to help, which is why I added it, but I used yucca powder once before without much luck. This Yucca is cut and sifted root, and this time the head retention was great. However, this was also the first time I added hops, and also I carbonated with yeast instead of CO2.
