Brad’s Notes:

"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 grapefruit 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 three separate packets of the flavoring, so you can decide how intense to make the flavor - add a little at a time and taste until you are happy with the flavor level."

Tastes yummy

It’s good. Thumbs up. Not overpowering flavor; just right. Give it time to ferment. Takes forever and nutrients definitely help.

Crisp and refreshing

I was patient and let this one sit for about six weeks. After reading a lot of the reviews, I opted to put in only about 2/3 of the flavoring. I used RO water and added just 1t of CaCl. I also kegged and force carbonated. Turned out crisp and refreshing at about 3.7% ABV.

It was okay

This was my first time making a seltzer. I think the hardest problem is keeping the fermentation happening. It’s still a challenge with the yeast nutrients. My ferment was temp controlled and I followed the nutrient profile as instructed but still didn’t achieve a ABV of what was advertised. I’m about a whole percent low. I’m going to look into additional yeast nutrient or a different yeast I think for the next try.
