Ascorbic Acid is an anti-oxidant used as a partial substitute for sulfur dioxide, or used to prevent oxidation, which creates a dull and unpleasant flavor, and to prevent discoloring in the final product. Recommended for wines that discolor easily.
Ascorbic Acid, like Copper Sulfate, is often used to treat hydrogen sulfide (H2S) or ‘mercaptans’, which presents as a rotten egg scent in your wine. Try treating first with Copper Sulfate but if the problem persists, then treatment with Ascorbic Acid will be necessary. If you have advanced H2S ‘disulfide’, the scent could be described as burnt rubber or garlic-like and the wine will not improve with the treatment of Copper Sulfate alone. The use of 0.25gm Ascorbic Acid per gallon will often help by converting the disulfides back to mercaptans. The process may take up to three weeks, after which the wine should be treated with Copper Sulfate.

Brupaks Irish Moss Copper Finings enables the brewer to achieve brighter worts by assisting the coagulation of unstable proteins in the copper and rapid settling of the coagulum as hot and cold breaks. It is important to produce consistently bright wort in order to reduce the level of protein and polyphenols. If high levels of these substances are present they will lead to draught beers that are difficult to fine or bottled beers with a greatly reduced shelf life. Whilst protein can to some extent be removed with auxiliary finings, it can present other problems which can be improved considerably by its removal in the copper.
Irish Moss is red brown flakes of seaweed (Chondrus crispus)The active compound is the polysaccharide Carageenan that carries a negative charge that interacts with proteins to form large flocs.
Method of Use
Irish Moss should be added to the copper 15 – 20 minutes before the end of the boil. This is to ensure that the active carrageenans are extracted.

Bulldog Sparger takes the effort out of the sparging process. With this unit, you can heat up to 18L of water to near boiling, all ready for use with the Bulldog Brewerwhen it is time for sparging.
The Bulldog Sparger connects easily to your pump from the Brewer, simply move the pump over to the valve outlet of the Sparger and pump over the hot sparge water, leaving the other end in the top hole of the Brewer. The obvious advantage is that you can place both units on the floor, or on a table. No need to place the sparge water heater much higher than the Brewer, which is not really where you want 18L boiling water!
