    Hey there, I need some help making a small batch of calciuim brine. I only need to make 55 gallons at a time. I tried a search of threads on the topic and its all looks alien to me. Does anyone know how much calcium chloride I need to make a 55 gallon drum of liquid? I have to try something with these cold temps out here and the rock salt just sits on the the lot shivering!!!
