Calcium Chloride 2 Oz is a key ingredient in the beer-making process, especially for lighter beers. It is used to lower the pH level, contributing to the overall balance and taste of the beer. A typical usage is 1 tsp per 5 gallons of beer, although this can be adjusted according to the specific requirements of your brew.

This product is particularly beneficial for brewing with water that is low in calcium content. By increasing the permanent hardness of the water, Calcium Chloride enhances the mouthfeel of the beer, giving it a superior texture compared to using gypsum. It also imparts a naturally existing sweetness, adding depth to the flavor profile of your beer.

Calcium Chloride is an ionic compound composed of calcium and chlorine. It is highly soluble in water and deliquescent, meaning it can absorb moisture from the air. At room temperature, it is a solid salt and behaves as a typical ionic halide.

Aside from brewing, Calcium Chloride has a wide range of applications. It is used as brine in refrigeration plants, for ice and dust control on roads, and in cement production. It can be produced directly from limestone or as a by-product of the Solvay process. Due to its hygroscopic nature, it is essential to store Calcium Chloride in tightly-sealed containers to maintain its efficacy.

Incorporate Calcium Chloride 2 Oz into your brewing process for a superior beer experience.
