Calcium Sulfate

Also known as Gypsum and Terra Alba.

This white food-grade calcium sulfate powder has a wide variety of uses. Calcium sulfate is used as an additive in brewing beer, and in baking. In cooking calcium sulfate, also known as gypsum, has thickening properties that have been used in canned vegetables and preservatives.

Calcium sulfate in beer brewing has several uses including:
  • It Increases the permanent hardness of water as it lowers the mash pH (this is a benefit when distilled water is used)
  • Calcium Sulfate is used to add sulfate "crispness" to hop bitterness
  • Typically 17 gm/hl will increase calcium content by 50 mg/liter

    Outside of consumables, calcium sulfate's thickening elements have also been known to be used in dental plaster and specialty cement.
