1 GALLON BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS RECIPE

 
Step 1. Sanitize As Directed

Follow the steps outlined in the instructions that came with your brewing system. If you don't have these, download a copy below.

SANITIZE ALL EQUIPMENT THAT COMES IN CONTACT WITH YOUR HARD SELTZER.

 
Step 2. Making This Recipe

Since seltzer is mostly water, the better the water the better your seltzer. For best results refrigerate your distilled water overnight before starting this recipe.

  • 2.1. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in a clean 3 quart pot.
  • 2.2. At first sign of bubbling, slowly stir in the corn sugar. Keep mixing until it has fully dissolved. Make sure sugar does not clump or stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • 2.3. Let boil for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and turn off the stove. Add the yeast nutrient and mix until it has completely dissolved. This is your base mixture.
  • 2.4. Add cold (refrigerated) distilled water to the “start” level (this is located on the side of your fermenter). Pour your mixture from the pot into the fermenter, then bring the volume of your fermenter to the “fill” level by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously.
  • 2.5. Once the temperature inside the fermenter is between 64°- 82° F add a 1/2 packet of yeast, then place on your lid (with vent plug).
  • 2.6. Place the fermenter out of direct sunlight and maintain a temperature between 64°- 82° F for approximately 10-14 days.
 
And Now You Wait

After 10-14 days the hard seltzer in your fermenter should have stopped fermenting and is now clear. It's time to bottle!

 
Step 3. Bottle This Recipe

Using the remaining One Step, sanitize (4) 1 liter PET bottles and caps by following the steps outlined in the instructions that came with your brewing system.

  • 3.1. In each sanitized 1 liter bottle, add 2 1/2 tsp. of table sugar and 1/4 tsp. of your natural flavoring (adjust to taste). Different bottle sizes require different amounts.
  • 3.2. Using the tap, fill each of bottle about 1 inch above the base of the neck. Make sure all bottles contain approximately the same amount.
  • 3.3. Remove excess oxygen by gently squeezing each bottle until the liquid works its way up the neck, then cap each bottle with a sanitized cap. Make sure the caps are nice and tight, then invert each bottle several times to dissolve the sugar. Do not shake bottles.
  • 3.4. Place the bottles upright and out of direct sunlight. Maintain a temperature between 64°- 82° F for approximately 5-7 days until bottles become firm to the touch.

CHECK EACH BOTTLE DAILY. WHEN THEY BECOME FIRM LIKE A NEW BOTTLE OF SODA, PLACE THEM IN THE FRIDGE OVERNIGHT.
