In beermaking: Chalk. Sometimes used for temporary hardness in dark beers. Adjusts pH up. In winemaking: Used to lower acidity levels. 2.5 grams per gallon will roughly lower acidity by .1%. It does not require cold stabilization to precipitate-out acid like Potassium Carbonate does, but it takes longer, affects flavor, and it reduces tartaric before dropping out malic or citric acids. See AD640 for Potassium Carbonate.A rough approximate of weight is 1 tsp = 2.7 grams. We highly recommend using a scale to weigh the product for an accurate dose. We do not recommend relying on these rough conversions for accurate dosage rates.
