Acid Blend

Acid Blend
Item 2127

Acid blend is used for acid adjustment in fruit wines. Use in grape wines is acceptable but not recommended due to difficulties manipulating malic acid and the possibility of malolactic activity. Consult a good winemaking textbook for more information. One teaspoon = approximately 4 grams. Do not mix with strongly alkaline solutions (e.g. sanitizers) due to release of potentially harmful gases. Composition: 66% tartaric acid, 33% malic acid. All meads require the addition of acids. The acidity of wine and mead can be checked with our acid titration kit or pH papers.
