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.

3.0 / 5.08 ReviewsDO 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
over 2 years agoVery easy to use. No measuring just one per bottle and cap.April 22, 2017Purchased
1 year agovery fizzy end product.These worked well. Dissolved and created a good fizz. My only complaint was that they left a film on the meniscus of the beer. Must be something added to the tablet. Worked well though. I will be using standard corn sugar next time though.April 5, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoToo bigThey work well, I just wish they were a little smaller; I have to wet them so they melt a little to get them into the swing top bottles that I use.March 15, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoSo far so good...They carbonated my beer as expected. They get a little sticky while handling them, and you are limited to your ability to adjust desired carbonation level. Other than that super easy.February 5, 2016

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.
