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.

Figured we'd give it a shot. Nice to bring on a couples trip for the ladies in addition to the beer we brew.

Do not recommend this method
My wife wanted me to make some hard seltzer for her. I bought this kit but also decided to try using vodka, flavoring, and to force carb. The second method was cheaper, easier, and turned out great.

We ended up pouring out two cases of bottles from the recipe kit. I was a bit nervous with all the warnings about stuck fermentation. Oh well, I learned something and to me that was a valuable lesson.

I recommend going the vodka route if you have the means to force carb a keg.

Not bad
First time brewing seltzer, so I'm taking this all with a grain of salt. (no pun indended) Followed the directions to a tee. Started with an 1.039 OG, and watched as it fermented down to 1.012. At 7 days I added 1/2 of the second packet of FermFed DAP Free. I added the other 1/2 packet at 10 days because it stuck at about 1.008. Finally hit 1.000 at 20 days. Added Super Kleer and bottled day 21. The finished product is pretty tasty, but has an odd bready smell to it. I can't taste it, but I can sure smell it. Also, there's quite a bit of sediment in the bottle, so the pour is a little tricky.

Yes, I would do this again (different flavor than raspberry) but I will probably try a secondary for a couple of weeks and then keg it.Write your review here. It must be at least 20 characters long. Consider whether you would recommend this product and what you like or dislike about it.
