Combine all ingredients, including your chosen flavor variations, in a stockpot over low heat. Stir until the salt and sugar dissolve and then remove from heat. Let the pot and the brine cool to room temperature.
Put the stockpot into the sink to catch drips. Carefully add the turkey to the stockpot. Add more water if needed to submerge the entire turkey. Cover the stockpot with a lid and refrigerate it for 12 to 24 hours.
Remove the turkey and pat it dry before cooking. (Do not rinse.) Discard brine.
Drippings from a brined turkey are extremely salty and should not be used to make gravy or used as stock.
