Using it for wine. Making strawberry rhubarb and justgrhubarb.
A 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.
Its 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.
I 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.
Convenient._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.
