GINGER EXTREME Ginger Beer Kit: HOT DATE EDITION (Hoppy Days and Sabarac Collab – Limited Edition)

1 customer review

Ready for a Hot Date? This strictly limited release is a very special collaboration with our mate Geoff at Sabarac. We’ve taken our popular Ginger Beer kit to a whole new level by adding fermented dried habanero powder to give it an extra firey kick! With a lingering heat and a rich savoury chili note, this ginger beer is dangerously drinkable.

Fight Fire With Fire

Things to know:

  • The Hot Date should be fermented hot. We recommend using kveik yeast to rip through this brew hot and fast (30-35°C is fine).
  • We’ve added glucoamylase enzyme to the kit, which makes this a low carb brew, perfect for a hot day.
  • Expect a lower final gravity. This brew will get under 1.000 specific gravity.
  • Add 1 to 2kg sugar (raw sugar or dextrose is fine). 1kg sugar will get the brew to around 3% ABV. 2kg sugar will get it to around 4.8% ABV.
  • This kit makes 20L.

InstructionsSubmerge container in hot water to loosen contents then add to a sanitised fermenter, rinsing out with more hot water if required. Add 1 to 2kg of sugar to fermenter then add 2 litres of hot water to fermenter and stir to dissolve sugar. Top up to 20L with cool, sterile water. Add yeast and ferment until specific gravity is stable.


Low / No Alcohol Option: Sorry bottlers, due to the inclusion of a low carb enzyme we don’t recommend you try to make this as a low/no alcohol brew.

Ingredients: Acidity Regulator, Sweeteners (952, 954), Amyloglucosidase Enzyme, Dried Fermented Habanero Powder, Natural Flavourings, Sucrose, Yeast Nutrients, Vegetable Gum, Dried Ginger Root, Dried Organic Lemon Peel

    Extremely spicy, extremely ginger, extremely tasty. Fermented out to 6.5% with 2kg raw sugar in 2 days using Voss Kveik, dangerously tasty, amazing flavour from the habaneros and actually proper spicy.
