Campden Tablets (Potassium Metabisulphite) - 1 oz (28 g)
Campden Tablets are a brewer’s little magic wand that helps achieve many things at once. First of all, the Potassium Metabisulphite delivered by the tablets helps to eliminate chlorine and chloramine from the brewing water, thus preventing the formation of a broad range of undesired flavours and aromas in the finished product. It also helps sterilize the wort and kill off any wild yeast and bacteria before introducing brewer’s yeast, decreasing the risk of infections and off-flavours.
Campden Tablets are also very popular in wine and cider making as they help sterilize the product and provide a cleaner and more controlled medium for the yeast to work with.
Approximately 50 tablets.
|Directions:||Add a single Campden Tablet per 10 gallons of water to instantly remove any chlorine before mashing or brewing, which will help get better wort and excellent tasting beer as a result. Just crush the tablet and mix with a small amount of water before adding to your brewing water.
Campden Tablets can also be used for sanitizing brewing equipment in a solution of 16 tablets per one gallon of water. And if you want to decrease the risk of infection or cross-contamination in your beer, wine, or cider, consider adding one-two crushed tablets per gallon of product to kill off any wild yeast or bacteria.
