I'd like to make these root beer float cupcakes. The recipe calls for root beer extract, but I haven't found any locally, and the cost plus shipping on Amazon is a little more than I'd like. I've tried googling this, but haven't come up with a definitive answer: can I substitute root beer concentrate (easily bought locally)? If so, what adjustments have to be made?
Usually extracts are used for flavoring foods, but in this case root beer extracts and concentrates both are for making root beer at home, so I would suspect that you could use concentrate in this case as long as you get the proportions right and use a non-sweetened concentrate. The products out there vary in concentration and sugar content, you'll probably have to buy one and experiment to get the amounts right.
