Description

Epsom is used to add sulfate and magnesium ions to brewing water. It is often used at half the levels of Gypsum. 1 gram in 1 gallon changes the salt levels by 103 ppm sulfate, 26 ppm Magnesium and adds 108 ppm to the hardness.

Promash is a useful utility to calculate water salts.

Epsom salt is also ideal as a nutrient source for growing hop plants.

TIP: If you're really sore after brewing and your hands or feet are aching, try adding 2oz of epsom salt to one gallon of hot water and soak for ten minutes. Temporarily relieves pain.

essential for perfect water
This great product adds MgSO4 to your mash to acidify as well as bring out that crisp hop bitterness. Anyone building their water NEEDS this in their aresenal.

For Hoppy Beer and Yeast Health
I use Epsom Salt to dial in my SO4/Cl ratio to a more exact ratio that I can get with gypsum alone. An added benefit is a little more magnesium in my water, which is good for yeast health and flocculation.

Does what you would expect
If you are brewing with an all-grain setup, water chemistry is a must. The brewing salts from More Beer do the job.
