Dionic at No.1 reduces the alkalinity levels of brewing liquor stimulating maximum enzyme activity in the wort enabling optimum pH levels throughout the whole brewing process. For rates of use, please refer to TDS.
The underlying principle of two-part Dionic treatments is that one solution contains the calcium required and the other contains the sulphate. Provided they are added to the hot liquor tank separately they remain ionised and in solution.
Consequently, the brewer is treating his liquor with calcium sulphate (gypsum) in solution, and a lot of the problems of sludge in the hot liquor tank are overcome. The remaining constituents that form the required balance of liquor treatment are divided between the two solutions.
Levels of the relevant ions present in your liquor can be obtained from your Local Water Authority or you can send in 500ml of your raw liquor to Murphy’s laboratory for a full analysis and suggested treatment rates. We are happy to calculate dosage rates for you. Just contact our laboratory: +44 (0)115 978 5494 or email email@example.com
Please note, Local Authority reports can provide results that are not up to date and may affect your calculations for ideal dosage rates. It is advisable to check the analysis of your water at least once a year, or on a more regular basis if the supply changes.
Another method of working out your alkalinity on a more regular basis is to purchase alkalinity testing kits which we are able to supply.
