In a new remixed video, we revisit one of my favorite projects of making a root beer float from scratch. In it, I had to forage my own sassafras roots and wintergreen, tap a tree for maple syrup, brew my own root beer, and milk a goat to make the ice cream.

Disclaimer: The safrole oil contained in sassafras root is known to be a weak hepatocarcinogen at higher doses in rats and mice and is banned for consumption by the FDA. This ban is controversial as more recent studies have suggested it might effect humans differently, with some scientists ranking it only as dangerous as breathing indoor air or drinking city water. Use at your own risk.

|| ABOUT ||
Today, getting what you need is as easy as a trip to the store. From food to clothing, energy, medicine, and so much more, Andy George will discover what it takes to make everything from scratch. His mission is to understand the complex processes of manufacturing that is often taken for granted and do it all himself. Each week he’s traveling the world to bypass the modern supply chain in order to harvest raw materials straight from the source. Along the way, he’s answering the questions you never thought to ask.

Music by the talented Taylor Lewin
