In beermaking: Chalk. Sometimes used for temporary hardness in dark beers. Adjusts pH up.

In winemaking: Used to lower acidity levels. 2.5 grams per gallon will roughly lower acidity by .1%. It does not require cold stabilization to precipitate-out acid like Potassium Carbonate does, but it takes longer, affects flavor, and it reduces tartaric before dropping out malic or citric acids. See AD640 for Potassium Carbonate.

A rough approximate of weight is 1 tsp = 2.7 grams. We highly recommend using a scale to weigh the product for an accurate dose. We do not recommend relying on these rough conversions for accurate dosage rates.

Best price on the web
And I have looked everywhere. Most places want to sell you like 4 ounces in a bottle. Just get a mason jar and store it in that.

Gets the water where it needs to be
If your PH is low this is the ticket to raise it up, I don't use a meter just strips and it works great for me. You can nail just about any water profile you want with the right adjustments.

Great for all grain brewing
Pair this up with a pH meter and a couple other salts to really target the water profile you want

a must have for allgrain brewing
I use RO Water and you must have your brewing salts. Great to bring the PH up in when mashing with dark grains.
