$5.95Price

An important mineral for its effect on mash and wort pH. Use as required depending on water hardness.

 

Calcium sulphate is often used as a source of calcium and is generally used in brewing British pale ales and bitters by adding a "crispness" to the hop bitterness.

 

Brewing salts should be used sparingly to make up for gross deficiencies or overabundance of ions. The concentrations below are for 1 gram dissolved in 1 gallon (3.785 litres) of distilled water.

 

Dissolution of 1g of a salt in your water will result in a different value due to your water's specific mineral content and pH. However, the results should be reasonably close.
