Product Description

Dry Liquor Salts (DLS) is a carefully controlled blend of inorganic salts designed to increase calcium levels and lower pH in tap water.

Calcium is a very important mineral in the brewing process for its effect on mash and wort pH. Calcium chloride and calcium sulphate (gypsum) are used to lower the pH (increase the acidity), whereas, when brewing dark beers with soft water, calcium carbonate is sometimes added to balance the inherent acidity of the roasted grains.

When brewing Pale Ales and Bitters it is usual to use both Carbonate Reducing Solution (CRS) and DLS to treat the liquor, as most water supplies have an excess of carbonate and insufficient calcium. For Lager it is recommended that CRS be used in the mashing liquor to reduce carbonate, followed by careful additions of lactic acid to the mash tun for lowering the pH.

Not sure why, but the Summer Cup samples are going down a storm in the shop this morning. :-)
This is alcohol-free, but we have the alcoholic version too for the brave non-drivers.
We hope there will be some left for the weekend.

Well Mr Dorset Ginger stopped by Dorset Homebrew today, but there was no mention of cake! Hummmph!

We've been feeling a bit fed up with the weather lately and as it's the school holidays too we've decided to brighten up our day with a fresh cream and homemade strawberry jam Victoria sandwich cake sprinkled with red glitter and decorated with red hearts. Can't wait to have a slice of it later 🍓🍰❤
