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!

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.

do you have to boil this like you would a beer? or what's the process look like?
Kevin Meyer on Sep 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: For this recipe you only need to get the batch hot enough to pasteurize the sugar. The higher temperature you take it to the more flavor and unfermented sugar you will get out of the batch. For pasteurization you will be plenty safe just warming it to 180 degrees and stir gently for 5 minutes after all of the sugar is dissolved.
First time doing a seltzer. No mention in the directions on adding the modifier salt packets during boil. Is it ok to add later during fermentation?

Very Refreshing
This was my first attempt at making seltzer and it came out very decent. I used RO water and used the minerals and yeast nutrient, along with a champagne yeast. The fermentation was VERY slow, it took 4 solid weeks to finish. The product itself is amazing, I just right around half of the cherry extract and the seltzer has just the right amount of sweetness, cherry flavor, and a subtle cherry aroma. I am going to make this a lot during the summer to cut down on my carb intake.
