Calcium Chloride 50 lb is a vital ingredient in the beer-making process, particularly beneficial for crafting lighter beers. It effectively lowers the pH level, aiding in achieving the perfect balance and taste in your brew. For larger brewing operations, the recommended usage is 1 tsp per 5 gallons of beer or 1 cup per 250 gallons of beer, although this can be adjusted to meet the specific needs of your brew.

This product is especially useful when brewing with water that has a low calcium content. Calcium Chloride increases the permanent hardness of the water, thereby enhancing the mouthfeel of the beer. This results in a superior texture compared to beers brewed with gypsum. Additionally, it imparts a naturally existing sweetness, adding a unique depth to the flavor profile of your beer.

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

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

Incorporate Calcium Chloride 50 lb into your brewing process for an enhanced beer experience.
