    Brewing salts and pH??

    why does everywhere I read suggest lowering the pH by using brewin salts? Most are pretty much just spectator ions and barely affect (if at all) the H+ concentration. Ex gypsum...CaSO4, add it to increase Ca+2.. cool, add it to increase SO4-2...also cool. Why are so many sources online saying it...
