One dose of Omega Yeast's specially formulated gluten-free Propper Seltzer™ nutrient powers your favorite beer yeast through a healthy sugar-based fermentation in as little as 7 days. Want even faster? Try 4 days with Propper Seltzer™ nutrient and Omega Yeast's Lutra™ Kveik! Depending on yeast selection and fermentation temperature, fermentation can take anywhere between 2-7 days. For the fastest results, ferment with Omega Yeast's kveik strains at high temps (80-96°).
Propper Seltzer™ supports your favorite Omega Yeast strains and many other yeast including wine yeast and distilling yeast strains. Not only does it work for seltzer fermentations but it will work for mead, cider, wine, and hard kombucha, or any other non-malt-based fermentation.

One pack provides yeast nutrients for five gallons of sugar wort at 1.060 or lower starting gravity.
- Add sugar to hot water and stir to dissolve. Boil for 10 min, measure gravity, and adjust.
- Once desired gravity is reached, turn off the heat source and add Propper Seltzer nutrient.
- Transfer sugar base to the fermenter at desired fermentation temp. Aerate by shaking or oxygenating.
- Pitch your favorite yeast strain and let it roll.
I’ve tried a few versions, including my own and the WL product and these packets are superior when using Lutra yeast: very clean, thorough fermentation, no beer-like off flavors
