Burton Salts

What it does :

Burton Salts are used to harden brewing water to create all-grain pale ales in the Burton-on-Trent style.

What it is:

This is a blend of minerals including gypsum, potassium chloride, and Epsom salts, intended to imitate the brewing water in the English city of Burton-on-Trent.

How it works:

Burton Salts increases the hardness of your brewing water and helps to control the chill haze in the finished beer.

Dosage:

Use of 1 teaspoon per 5 gallons adds 889 ppm of mineral content to the water. Add to the water when mashing for all-grain brewing, or just before the boil.
