DIY Hooch Kit

Alcoholic alchemy

Sorry, this product is not available.

  •  The greatest invention since alcohol itself
  •  Transform soft drinks into boozy delights in just 48 hrs
  •  Feel like a modern day messiah


We've all heard the stories about a certain peace-loving dude and how he turned water into wine. Not an easy party trick that.

Thankfully, now we can all be modern day messiahs, and enjoy the ability to turn dreary old juice into a much more potent potion. With the DIY Hooch Kit.

Simply combine the 'magical' powder with your juice, pop in the plug and wait.

The minimum time for fermentation is 48 hours but the longer you leave it to work the more potent your drink will become (to a maximum A/C of 14%).

Customer Reviews

The Hooch kit is ideal for a beginner to start and enjoy making there own brew. For idea's I suggest a good retail outlet that stock's Soda Stream concentrate's: Choose from traditional flavours (Cola, Lemonade, Orange)retro flavours (Cream Soda, Dandelion and Burdock)cocktail non-alcoholic flavours (Cosmopolitan, Margarita); fruity(Elderflower, Cranberry & Raspberry, Apple, Passion & Mango, Cherry, Lime) or classic mixers (Bitter Lemon, Tonic, Ginger Beer). They make great mixers and can save money on the cost of buying drinks except you make alcohol with the Hooch kit, It's so easy to use I highly recommend it, when the bubbles stop in the air lock the fermentation will be finished. Ready steady go, Let's party and enjoy the drinks. Hope this is helpful to all Firebox-customers.

This stuff is great. My favorite so far is cranberry and apple. Its like a really nice cidery flavour. I am already recommending it and bought more.

Does the finished product need to be refrigerated? Also, does it go bad if you leave it too long?
Harry - 25th May 2013
Firebox says: Hey Harry, yes its probably best to keep this refrigerated! And we'd recommend once you've made one to drink it as soon as possible!
This is amazing! I make a bottle before parties and it always goes down well. It works out about £2 a litre, including juice, which is pretty good considering it tastes so nice! I like to make it in an empty robinsons double concentrate 1. 75l bottle, it holds the perfect amount of juice and the airlock fits perfectly.

Firebox says: Hey Kitz. Thanks for such a great review. We're super happy that you like the Hooch Kit so much.
Excellent kit, does the job perfectly. I used Asda own brand 1L shelf juices which taste great. 3 to 4 days gets it a bit more alcoholic and sharper. If you are struggling to find bottles that fit, 4 pint plastic milk bottles work a treat. A little tip though, best to buy some baby steriliser (~50p for 1L) and sterilise the bottles/equipment first as milk contains bacteria that may kill off the yeast.

Firebox says: Hi Nathan, Great tips! and remember people, drink responsibly!
I have made a lovely batch of Cranberry and Raspberry (Ocean Spray) tastes great over Ice and is slightly sparkling. Having filtered mine I can now reseal. The instructions recommend any variety of welchs or Ocean Spray so if there is a flavour you like 'Hooch It'.
