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.

What is in the Water Modifier Salt Pack?
Peter M DeBree on Oct 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The Hard Seltzer Salts are 10grams mix of (magnesium chloride, calcium sulfate and sodium bicarbonate). No they don't tell you how much of each.
I haven't used magnesium chloride in brewing before. The packet included with the Wild Water kit is in liquid form (5g) - is that right?
Tyler Hulsebus on Nov 12, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that is correct. It is liquid
