DetailsNorthern Brewer Fizz Drops are designed to take the place of making a priming solution and batch priming. These drops help to reduce the guesswork often associated with irregular batch size bottle conditioning, because they are a uniform weight of pure sugar.
8 oz., Qty= 60 Drops (approximately).
1 drop per 12-16 oz bottle
2 drops per 22 oz or 750mL bottle
Simply drop in each sanitized bottle before filling it with beer. The drop should dissolve within 72 hours - carbonation time remains the same, usually 2-3 weeks.

2 months agoThe fizz drops worked well. A lot “cleaner” and easier to use instead of measuring out sugar before bottling brew. I would definitely use them again.March 31, 2019Purchased
3 months agoFizz Drops - Not recommended.If you want good and consistent fermentation, use priming sugar. Just one home brewer's opinion!March 24, 2019Purchased
6 months agoGreat product. Not so great packaging.The product works fine. On my last order it was a mess. The packaging is weak. They were scattered throughout the box when I opened it. The bag was split down the side and empty. Otherwise they are great to have around for simply bottling a handful of beers when filling a keg.February 7, 2019Purchased
5 months agoI'm ImpressedAfter reading reviews of hard to get into a bottle and leaving a film I was skeptical to use these. I did not have any issues dropping these into a standard bottle. All of the beers carbonated perfectly. I just ordered more for the next brew.January 12, 2019Purchased
1 year agoDO NOT BUYI've used a similar product and it worked fine. These may actually work, don't know yet, but most of them were too large to fit into the bottle without forcing them in with an object other than your hand. A few dropped right in, but the majority didn't. Don't even bother until they get the tolerances right.September 19, 2018Purchased

1 year agoWont Fit In The BottleA fine product I'm sure but the size prohibits dropping into the mouth of an EZ Cap swing cap bottle. Used my Cooper's Carbonation Drops instead.It cannot be pushed into the bottle without risk.January 1, 2018Purchased
1 year agoWorksThey work, however I hate having to touch each one while I put them into the bottles. It you have a small batch, like a gal then they are worth a shot.July 7, 2017Purchased

- Customer Q&A
Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 11 answersWhat about sanitation?BEST ANSWER: I use fizz drops to easily bottle prime when I have a small batch, like a one gallon test batch with very few bottles. It produces excellent results. I have never had any sanitation related problems using the drops. I sanitize my bottles before filling of course. I suppose you could sanitize the drops prior to use but I have not found it to be necessary.can these be added to wine?BEST ANSWER: Dont think it will work unless you also added yeast at bottling. I'm assuming you want to carbonate a bottled wine. In my experience wines are stabilized at the end of fermentation before bottling with potassium sorbate which essentially stops the yeast in their tracks. Not to mention the clearing agents that aim to remove suspended yeast. You would need those suspended healthy yeasts to eat up the fizz drops for carbonation. Hope this makes sense.Are the fizz drops purely corn sugar? Or is there another ingredient? The reason I'm asking is because we use clarityferm during the fermentation process to reduce the gluten content. Just wondering if we were affecting that with the fizz drops, like if they had DME in them or another gluten containing ingredient.BEST ANSWER: Honestly not sure, but whatever’s in them, they simply do not work as well as either dry DME or priming sugar syrup. I’ve tried using the drops about three times (in various sizes - 12 oz, 20 oz and growler fills) now and have to say that I am very underwhelmed.If I heat a partial batch to turn into NA for a friend will these still carbonate?BEST ANSWER: If you heat up the beer and kill off the yeast then No it won't carbonate. There has to be some active yeast left in order to "ferment" a little and produce the CO2 that is carbonation.can I use in cider the fizz drops?
thank youBEST ANSWER: Yes, you can use fizz drops with cider. However, the cider cannot be stabilized after fermentation in order to get carbonation and you will have a dry sparkling cider.
