These little bubbles pack a punch! Making a hard seltzer is an easy way to have variety this summer that’s also incredibly refreshing. The Mojito hard seltzer kit is a perfect complement to a day spent out in the sun. While it will not whisk you off to tropical climates, this Mojito inspired seltzer is a delicious beverage. With a burst of bright citrus and refreshing mint this light-bodied, sparkling delight is sure to please even if you are not at a beachside resort. Pure dextrose, water and an aggressive yeast strain all combine to produce an elixir of exquisite quality. No one will not judge you for trying it with a bit of simple syrup and rum in the glass.
When you keep it simple, clean, and all-natural, it’s easy to create a superior beverage. Crystallized Mojito is made of real juices and oil and sugar-free.

Notes from Brad, Northern Brewer Development Brewer:
“Hard seltzer waters are all the rage these days, so why not ride the wave? This kit is a very simple and straightforward fermentation consisting only of dextrose (corn sugar). The resulting product is boozy water, coming in right at about 5.5% ABV and is then flavored with all-natural crystallized citrus and mint powder.
To ensure the best results with this kit, be sure to follow the directions and add the yeast nutrient packets according to the schedule described. Adding yeast nutrients in staggered additions ensures that the yeast remain happy and healthy and will avoid any off-flavors that stressed-out yeast can generate.
The fermentation will be complete within 2 weeks or so, but be sure to leave this batch sit for a few additional weeks to allow the yeast to drop out of solution and leave behind a clear beverage.
We have also included more flavoring than likely needed, so you can decide how intense to make the flavor - add a little at a time and taste until you are happy with the taste."
Tastes like water with a little bit of alcohol and artificial flavoring. It brewed fine, cleared up, but just not worth the time and effort. Save yourself some time, add some vodka to distilled water, carbonate it, then drink it. I kegged it, drank a few, and finally poured it out to make space for real beer.
