Description

Put down the mash paddle and grab an oar! Instead of fighting the overwhelming current of industry trends, let's ride these rapids and shred some wild water gnar! Hard Seltzer is here to stay thanks to popular brands like White Claw and Truly, and as a homebrewer you've probably already been asked by friends or family to whip up a batch. The truth is that hard seltzer is very simple to prepare, and any level brewer can make it at home. We've put together a simple kit that includes sugar, yeast, nutrients, and a packet of salts to adjust your water to a proper seltzer profile. Everything is included except for the water -- sorry, but have you ever looked into shipping water? It's stoopid expensive!

Mandatory Tagline: You'll be laid back like an otter when you're drinking Wild Water!

The new and improved Wild Water Hard Seltzer kit features retooled water modifier salt packets for increased fermentation performance. The previous single salt pack has been split into separate A and B salt packs, which we found significantly increased the buffering capacity to prevent the fermentation pH from dropping below the tolerance level of the yeast, leading to far fewer instances of stuck fermentation or not reaching the target final gravity.

Please note: each kit includes an extra packet of yeast and FermFed (DAP Free). Read the instructions carefully, and only use the extra packets if you experience a stuck fermentation.

Tip: to ensure your seltzer ferments all the way out, we recommend keeping the fermentation temperature above 70°F. Although it is unlikely to happen with the buffers included in the Water Modifier Salt Packets, a drop in pH below 3 can cause the fermentation to stop. Adding a few grams of chalk, baking soda, or potassium carbonate will bring the pH back up. This should only be done if you have measured the pH and found it is too low.

I might have missed this, but how much priming sugar for hard seltzer should I use when bottling? Thanks.
Cory S on Jul 21, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Ok so I have done this kit and legged it. But I also did a similar kit from different supplier. This is their instructions for the priming solution. 2/3 cup corn sugar to 16 oz of water. Or 5/8 cup table sugar to 16 oz of water. Bring to boil and pour into bottling bucket. Then follow the beer bottling process. I have always allowed my priming solution to cool first. Just remember the kit you made is with champagne yeast so I would double check those caps to have a good tight seal
Hope it helps

So it says available in California and out of stock in Pennsylvania. Can I have it shipped to Florida? Just a little confused.....
Daniel Poe on Aug 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We can ship to anywhere from either warehouse. The only difference is the travel time it will take to arrive.

Good flavor
Great kit. Follow the instructions and I suggest using the whole flavor bottle for taste. I have also made the same flavor from a different supplier. They both have different characteristics so different kind of flavors but this one is pretty good.
