DetailsCitric Acid can be used in sanitizing solutions to lower the pH, which will make the SO2 level more effective. It is also used to increase acidity at a ratio of 0.1% for each teaspoon per gallon in wine. Be careful with how much you add to your wine because you will get a very tart flavor if you use to much.

4.9 / 5.09 ReviewsDoes what it saysThis is your basic citric acid. Does what it says, adds acidity to your wine. I recommend acid blend, this and tartaric acid, though, for a little bit more well rounded acidity and flavor.November 30, 2012Use it to acidify your wineThis makes a good base. I use mostly Citric acid, not as much tartaric and malic acid when making a base to acidify my wine._x000D_The flavor comes out better this way.December 10, 2012Great for brewing.This is a good/necessary product to use in making invert sugar which is a good addition to beers. Invert sugar has the advantage over regular corn sugar is that you may use more before you run the risk of the cidery flavor that corn sugar can add to your brew. Very nice additive to beer if you wish to up your alcohol with little to no flavor change.June 5, 2013Great multi purpose productI use it for brewing and my wife uses it to make laundry soap. Great product to have around.July 20, 2013Use it for wine makingI use a mixture for wine making, to adjust the pH. I mix it with Malic and Tartaric acid based on the acid testing kit results. Many of the bases I use work best with Citric acid so I use it in higher proportions._x000D_October 7, 2013pH adjustmentI use several acids to adjust my Wines pH rather than rely on a blended powder, so I have more control. Citric acid is noticeable above a not so low threshold so add a little at a time in a sample then scale up.November 21, 2013Add acidity to Wine and MeadWhen I add acid, I add mostly Citric, with a touch of Malic and Tartaric to round it out. I wouldn't dream of doing this without a pH meter.December 28, 2013Can help wine if too mellowThis works well to help lower the pH of wine. Measure well because unlike other acids this can change the wines flavor.March 6, 2014
