Beer and Wine Making Additives / Chemicals
Acid Blend
A blend of tartaric, malic and citric acids.
American Oak Chips
Light toast.
Amylase Enzyme
Used in brewing to increase fermentability.
Anti-Oxidant / Ascorbic Acid
Used at bottling time to prevent oxidation.
Bentonite
Used for clearing hazes from wine.
Burton Water Salts
A blend of natural minerals that create ideal brewing water and papain, a natural occurring fruit derivative that helps to prevent chill haze.
Calcium Carbonate
Used in beer and wine making to reduce acidity.
Citric Acid
Calcium Chloride
Used in beer making to lower pH.
Diammonium Phosphate
Used to increase yeast production and growth. Works well in a yeast starter to increase activity and yeast reproduction. Diammonium Phosphate also works well with white wines and meads, which are typically lacking in natural nutrients
Dualfine Clearing Aid
Use as a dual stage clearing aid for beer, wine and spirits. Contains Chitosan and Kieselsol
French Oak Chips
Medium toast, roasted between 350 and 375 degrees F.
Gelatin Finings

Used in beer and wine making for clearing.
Glycerine
Finishing formula, to smooth out and mellow wine and liqueurs.
Gypsum
Gypsum (Calcium Sulphate) is used as a water treatment;
especially useful for soft water.
Irish Moss
Irish Moss is added during the final 15 minutes of the boil to aid in settling out the coagulated proteins that cause cloudy beer.
Lactic Acid
Lowers pH in mash.
Lactose
Lactose is non-fermentable milk sugar and adds sweetness to drier beers.
Malic Acid
Malto-Dextrin
Maltodextrin is used to increase the specific gravity of the final beer product. This improves the mouthfeel and smoothness of beer. Maltodextrin is not fermented by the yeast and has no flavor.
Pectic Enzyme
Increases juice yield and prevents pectin haze.
Potassium Bicarbonate
Used to reduce acid.
Potassium Sorbate
Stabilizer - Used to prevent re-fermentation when sweeting wine.
Potassium Campden
Contains potassium metabisulphite and is a convenient way to accurately sulphite wine
Potassium Metabisulfite
Used as a sanitizer, antioxident and bactericide.
Sodium Campden Tablets
Contains sodium metabisulfite and is a convenient way to accurately sulphite wine. Releases sulphur dioxide, which acts as a sterilant and antioxidant
Sodium Metabisulfite
Used as a sanitizer, antioxidant and bactericide.
Sparkolloid
Wine Finings for clearing wines.
Tartaric Acid
Whirlfloc Tablets
A clarifying agent used in brewing during the boil. It is a concentrated tablet derived from Irish Moss.
Wine Conditioner
Sweetener with satbilizer.
Wine Tannin
Balances low tannin wines.
Yeast Nutrient
Yeast nutrient increases the rate of yeast metabolism, which results in faster fermentation and greater yeast viability.
Yeast nutrient can also be helpful when brewing high gravity beers.
Yeast Energizer
Stimulates fermentation - a nutrient booster.
