Sodium Bicarbonate 100g
Sodium Bicarbonate, also known as baking soda, is a common chemical used in brewing and distilling to increase alkalinity and raise the pH of the mash. By doing so, it can impact the efficiency of the mashing process and the final flavor of the beer or distilled product. Sodium bicarbonate is often used in hard water areas to balance out the acidity of the water and improve the brewing process. Additionally, it can be used as an antacid to neutralize stomach acid in humans. In brewing and distilling, it is typically added to the water before mashing or boiling to ensure even distribution.
