Crystallized Grapefruit powder allows you to enjoy the taste of fresh-squeezed grapefruit in whatever you brew or ferment without the hassle of fruit or purees. Made from real grapefruit juice and oils, this grapefruit replacement can be used to enhance the flavor of beer, hard seltzer, wine, cider, or Kombucha.
Recommended to be added at bottling or kegging to taste, 18 grams should be more than enough for most 5 gallon batches.
Add the crystallized citrus packet to 1 cup of water until dissolved. Heat to boiling briefly then add to bottling bucket or keg. Add a little at a time and taste until you are happy with the flavor level.

I used the crystals in a five gallon batch of a seltzer I mad . Used only dextrose and reverse osmosis water. I used champagne yeast and buffered the water to allow the yeast to flourish. I put the crystals in a corny keg, then racked my seltzer into the keg. After carbonating and sampling it had excellent grapefruit flavor, but it is very subtle. I may try using 1.5 packets next time for a little stronger flavor. It is a very natural grapefruit flavor though.
