1. Combine all ingredients except the brown sugar in a stock pot.
2. Bring pot to boil, stir and reduce to a simmer. Cover and let simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
3. Turn off heat. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Cover and let mixture steep until cool, approximately 3 hours.
4. Strain liquid through a fine mesh sieve, then through one or more coffee filters into a clean, sterile jar. Store concentrated extract in refrigerator for up to three months.

To mix Use a 16 ratio of concentrate to sparkling water for a subtly sweet beverage. Adjust the ratio for more or less sweetness according to your personal dietary preferences and desired taste.

Substitute vanilla ice cream for the ice in the sparkling water for an outstanding root beer float.
