Discover the secret to a perfectly balanced brew with Calcium Chloride, an indispensable additive for the seasoned home brewer. Ideal for enhancing the flavor and stability of your beer, Calcium Chloride is a key element in water chemistry management for brewing.

What is Calcium Chloride?
Calcium Chloride (CaCl2) is a salt compound that, when added to brewing water, affects the beer's overall flavor, mouthfeel, and chemical balance. It is particularly useful in accentuating malt flavors and adding smoothness to the beer's finish. This makes it a favorite among brewers who aim to perfect the profiles of their lagers, stouts, and other malt-forward styles.

Usage and Benefits:

  • Malt Flavor Enhancement: Calcium Chloride enhances the sweetness and complexity of the malt, making it essential for brewing rich, flavorful beers.
  • Water Softening: It helps in softening water by lowering the pH and enhancing the effectiveness of the brewing process.
  • Improved Beer Stability: By contributing to the ionic balance in the brew, it aids in protein coagulation, which can enhance the clarity and stability of the final product.

Recommended Dosage:
The addition of 1 teaspoon (about 4 grams) of Calcium Chloride per 5 gallons of water is typically recommended, but this may vary based on your specific water profile and brewing needs. It’s advisable to start with a smaller amount and adjust according to taste and the desired brewing outcome.
