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 lime 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."
flavor was good
Fun brew. Interesting yeast process. It required nearly a month to finish fermentation. Good recipe with great details to make it fun. I didn’t use the entire Lime. My taste was satisfied by using about 80% of the Lime solution. Great tasting! I’ll brew this each Spring to have something on hand for guests who want something other than a good beer.
the box had no ABV expectation. While I know it was supposed to be lower I had to buy more yeast and nutrients to get it to 3.1% and it took an additional 2-3 weeks to get it to there. Also I kegged it instead of bottled like the instructions said. I've done several however instructions on a keg set up, or ABV would have been reassuring. For that reason I understand I could have done something wrong , not sure what though. Not my first rodeo. :) still tasted good a bit heavy in the mouth almost like flat, im still drinking it though. Cheers :)
