Enhance your home brewing experience with our premium quality Gypsum, also known as Calcium Sulfate. A crucial ingredient in the brewing process, Gypsum plays a pivotal role in modifying water chemistry, allowing you to perfect the taste and clarity of your homemade beer.

What is Gypsum?
Gypsum (Calcium Sulfate) is a natural mineral that helps adjust the pH level of your brewing water, promoting optimal enzyme activity during the mash process. Its addition aids in the precipitation of proteins, resulting in clearer beer with a smoother taste. Gypsum is especially beneficial for brewing hop-forward styles like IPAs and Pale Ales, as it enhances hop bitterness and contributes to the overall flavor profile of the beer.

Usage and Benefits:

  • Water Chemistry Adjustment: Gypsum is essential for adjusting the sulfate and calcium ions in your brewing water, critical for enzyme activity and yeast health.
  • Enhanced Flavor and Clarity: It sharpens hop bitterness and improves the clarity of your beer by facilitating protein coagulation.
  • Versatile for Various Beer Styles: Particularly beneficial for brewing pale ales and IPAs, but it can also enhance the quality of other beer styles.

Recommended Dosage:
Typically, 1 to 2 teaspoons (approximately 4 to 8 grams) of Gypsum per 5 gallons of water is recommended. However, the exact amount depends on your specific water profile and brewing requirements. We advise conducting a water analysis to determine the optimal dosage for your brew.
