1 year agoEasier than mixing 3 individual acid powdersA good way to adjust pH and get a good blend of acids so your wine avoids harshness. Its a more well rounded acidity, and will improve certain wines.March 3, 2014Easy to useIts a good blend, and easy enough to measure. I don't add it all at ounce, I add, and taste and repeat until its just right. _x000D_If I had to measure fractions of a gram of three acids myself it would be a pain in the neck and I doubt I'd be accurate enough.December 21, 2013Mead and Melomel additionI add the acid at bottling time. Depending on whats in the Mead I vary the amount I use. I take 4 ounces and a scientific scale and measure out powder in Centigrams and mix it in till I'm satisfied with the taste. Start small with a sample, then scale up. Don't be afraid to under use the acid. Next time you can add more, but you can't take it out, unless you start adding more chemicals.November 19, 2013wine makingConvenient._x000D__x000D_Anytime you are dealing in units of 1 gram or half a gram, it's easy to be off and make a bad mixture. I'm more than happy to have this measured out for me, at a cost savings to boot, and get it don't right. This way I don't need to buy 3 bags of different acids that I'll never use up.October 10, 2013for advanced wine makersIf you know what you are doing, this si a good blend.
