Product Rating:

I crush up a tablet and mix it into my brewing water as I am heating it. By the time its at mash temperature, its's dissolved and the Chlormine is gone. My beer has a cleaner less phenolic taste now.

Gets rid of the bad aid taste and smell from beer Review by JD

Our local water has Chlorine and the beer doesn't taste as good as it should. I crack a pill in half and add it while heating my water and it drives off the Chlorine making the beer taste better.

I use the Campden tablets to treat my water, so its usable for brewing. Half a tablet is what I use for 7 gallons of water.

Good for municipal brewing water Review by William

My city treats its water with Chloramine and that causes the beer to taste medicinal. By adding a pill to the water at the start of the brew day I can remove the Chloramine and make better tasting beer.

Stopped using Review by Rick W.

Product Rating:

I stopped using sulfides a couple of years ago. Some wine recipies go crazy with them using them at every stage. I "read" they can cause ED problems. I would rather boil than go through that mess.

I use it with Potassium Sorbate. I dissolve 1 crushed tablet per gallon of wine. Then I can bottle without fear of bottle bombs.

These little guys are well worth the price. Even if they don't contribute a whole lot you can be sure that the water quality you are starting with is where you want it to be!
