Notes from Brad, Northern Brewer Development Brewer:
“Hard seltzer waters are all the rage these days, so why not ride the wave? This kit is a very simple and straightforward fermentation consisting only of dextrose (corn sugar). The resulting product is boozy water, coming in right at about 5.5% ABV and is then flavored with all-natural crystallized lemon strawberry powder.
To ensure the best results with this kit, be sure to follow the directions and add the yeast nutrient packets according to the schedule described. Adding yeast nutrients in staggered additions ensures that the yeast remain happy and healthy and will avoid any off-flavors that stressed-out yeast can generate.
The fermentation will be complete within 2 weeks or so, but be sure to leave this batch sit for a few additional weeks to allow the yeast to drop out of solution and leave behind a clear beverage.
We have also included more flavoring than likely needed, so you can decide how intense to make the flavor - add a little at a time and taste until you are happy with the taste."
My second hard seltzer. Fermentation went better than last time, used way more nutrient than supplied and stirred to let out CO2 often. More similar to brewing mead than beer. Strawberry lemon is just OK, kind of artificial tasting. I preferred the lime kit. I might add some more crystalized lemon if it doesn't get better with age
I wish I started this early so I could enjoy it during the summer. I will extend the summer enjoying this seltzer probably won't last to much longer.
First time trying seltzer! I followed the directions and added ingredients as instructed. It was super easy! Had my first bottle this week....it has a great taste and is very refreshing! Will MOST definitely be brewing this again!! THANK YOU 💖
Fermenting now looks great so far! Can't wait to sip this one. Thanks
