Calcium chloride is usually used in place of Gypsum when sulfates are not desired. Calcium chloride will adjust your mash pH down. 1 gram in 1 gallon changes the salt levels by 72 ppm calcium, 127.5 ppm chloride and adds 180 ppm to the hardness.

Calcium Chloride is used to correct mineral deficiencies in water which is to be used for brewing. It is used in de-mineralized or soft to medium hard water to increase permanent hardness. Calcium Chloride is effective in eliminating the variations in composition often encountered in water from surface sources. It will help establish proper pH of the mash and the wort and provide sufficient calcium ions essential for enzyme function, kettle protein coagulation and yeast metabolism.

0.2 grams/liter increases calcium content by 50 mg/liter

Lowers pH.  Useful for adding Calcium if the water is low in chlorides.  Commonly used in beers with malt forward profile.

1 tsp. of Calcium Chloride per gallon adjusts water hardness by 297 ppm Ca2+ and 531Cl-.
