For all grain brewers
I add a tea spoon of Calcium to help lower the mash Ph and to add minerals for the Yeast. The grains are clumped together but dissolve in a minute in the water.

Its the best way to add calcium to your mash water. I use a teaspoon for every 5 gallons.

make your beer taste better
Add a tea spoon if you use low mineral water like NYC tap water or distilled water. It helps the mashing process and improves the taste of the beer. It gives the yeast calcium without the mineraliness of Sufates.

Can't brew all grain without it
Great price for an essential salt. Without this my all grain beer would not taste as good. This package lasts a lot of brews too.

Plan ahead, or buy small
I bought the 1lb bag and it has been a great addition to my all-grain brewing, and nearly impossible to beat for this price! The only thing that could improve this is if it came in a resealable package or bottle. It comes in a standard vacuum sealed bag that you either have to reseal every time or find another way to store.

For non-hoppy beers
I brew all grain and like to adjust the water for the style of beer I'm making._x000D_I use it to adjust the Chloride - Sulphate ratio for when I make non hoppy beers. _x000D_It's not very effective for adjusting mash pH, for that I either use acid or acidulated malt.
