Burton Salts$0.85 – $9.99
Also known as brewing salts, it is a mixture of Gypsum, Calcium Carbonate and Epsom Salt. 1 tsp adds 1119 ppm per 1 gallon. For Pale Ales in the Burton on Trent style. Burton salts can come in either crystal or powdered form. We ship what is available at the time your order is placed.
30g per 5 gallons will provide:
266 ppm Ca
63 ppm Mg
159 ppm Carbonate
631 ppm Sulfate
Calcium Carbonate$1.69 – $42.99
Used to reduce the acidity of wine. It does not require cold-stabilization to force complete precipitation, as does potassium carbonate. However, calcium carbonate is more likely to affect the flavor than potassium carbonate, and may take a few months to fully precipitate. One-quarter ounce (about 4 teaspoons) reduces acidity in one gallon by about 0.25%. Foaming may occur because of the production of CO2. Do not use more than one ounce per gallon. Wait 24 hours and rack wine. Also used in beer to increase the temporary hardness of water. Traditionally used in English stouts, pale ales and bitters.
Calcium Chloride$1.49 – $11.99
Used in place of Gypsum when sulfates are not desired. Adjusts mash pH down. 1 gram in 1 gallon changes the salt levels by 72 ppm calcium, 127.5 ppm chloride and adds 180 ppm to the hardness.
Promash is a useful utility to calculate water salts.
This is anhydrous Calcium Chloride.
Epsom Salt$1.39 – $88.99
Added to mash water to lower pH and increase sulfates. Increases perception of hop flavor and hop bitterness. Epsom salts (Magnesium Sulfate) are a standard component of “brewing salts” mixtures to approximate the Burton-On-Trent brewing water.
Usage: Varies depending on base water chemistry. Use up to 1/2 tsp per 5 gallons.
Chemical name: Magnesium Sulfate, MgSO4
