HQ's was powdery, but she got hers from a brewery supply store, not the garden section at ACE. worked fine as a powder, though some kinda setlled to the bottom of the jar and made a pasty ring (which, may have been good since thats where she always gets the wetspot starting).

you use it in shakable quart jars to make the grains not clump together as much. whats it used for in brewing?

they have a lot of neato stuff at the brewshop- gypsum, yeast, dextrose, glass flasks, graduated cylinders, scales, thermometers, all kind of grains (but more expensive than buying at a health food store), additives for agar (like potassiums and such... havent tried but theyre there), and some carry lab stuff since i guess they yeast culture \(so, innoculation loops and the like as well, but not at mine). brewing seems cool, but i dont like beer... :(

In brewing, gypsum is used to adjust the pH downward. I'm not a pro at this so I don't really know why you need to decrease the pH.
