5.2 is a proprietary blend of food-grade phosphate buffers (similar to brewer’s salts) that will lock in your mash and kettle water at a pH of 5.2 regardless of the starting pH of your water.
5.2 is safe for your mash and WILL NOT add any flavors to your beer. 5.2 will provide consistency of pH in any water conditions, but the most significant gains will be obtained if you are brewing in hard water. Use 5.2 Mash Stabilizer to optimize your enzymatic activity in your malt, help clarify your wort, and achieve a more consistent hop utilization. Use 1/3 oz. per 5 gallons of water.

Mash Stabilizer, works great if water is good and want to get ph 5.2 corrected,
We have city water its good but depending on the day of brewing mash ph may be off. our city water we use softener then filter all our water thru charcoal filter also bought here, Bring our water to mash temp and then added Mash Stabilizer to the water 10 minutes prior to mash and even at mashing and it works great.
Need to measure and add correct amount, to water per gallon. pretty easy.
I was having difficulty getting proper starch conversion and this helped get me in the right pH range and conversion went quickly.
I brew with the Grainfather and I've had problems reaching my target numbers ever since I got it. My mash efficiency stank. When I wanted an OG of 1.055, I got 1.044. When I wanted 1.040, I got 1.029. I tried single, 2- & 3-step mashing, double milling the grist, adding rice hulls, extending the mash duration to 90 min all to no avail ... until I tried this product. The first time I tried 52 pH I hit my numbers exactly! I wanted a preboil SG of 1.044 & got 1.046 and an OG of 1.055 and got 1.054. I highly recommend this product!
Good price. Does the job
I followed the directions and measured out the correct amount. I have a pH meter and it didn't bring the wort pH to 5.2. It didn't seem to have the desired effect.
