5.0 / 5.05 ReviewsNecessary for cider makingIt's important that your must not be too acidic or the yeast will become stressed and the cider wont taste as good. Just don't go over board or you can end up with a gritty tasting cider. I shoot for a 0.2 adjustment at most.November 2, 2013Good Mineral for All Grain BrewingI used this to increase the Carbonate level of my brewing water to match whatever profile I am going for. This small 2 oz. jar will go a LONG way considering you only add 1.0-2.0 grams per batch depending on what you are going for. So for very little money you can make significant improvements in your All Grain beer and it goes a long way. Plus you can reuse the bottle over and over, the cap reseals nicely.December 3, 2013pH adjustmentMy water is soft with no buffering ability thus I need this to prevent the pH of the must from dropping too far. It took some trial and error, slowly adding it, to figure out how much to add. Just go slow, a little bit at a time, wait for the pH to adjust, then measure.December 6, 2013Mainly of use in Cider makingI have reverse Osmosis water and using my pH meter i see that sometimes the must is too acidic so I add just enough CaCO3.to reach the lower end of the pH range.February 17, 2014
