GYPSUM LD Carlson 6106B Calcium Sulphate – 1 lb.

$3.00

Gypsum (calcium sulfate) adds permanent hardness (calcium ions), lowers pH, and adds water hardness to brewing water before the boil. One gram per gallon adds 62 ppm calcium, 147 ppm sulfate. To add calcium ions, Use 1/2 to 2 teaspoon per 5 gallon batch.  It is added by dissolving the gypsum in the mashing and sparging water or directly as a powder into the grist or mash vessels at mashing.  Brewers that use distilled or RO water like to add some gypsum back into the water to give it some hardness.  Gypsum can also be used to lower the pH of water.
