Citric Acid

Weight: 
Description

Used primarily in sanitizing solutions to lower pH, therefore making the SO2 solution more effective. Use 1 tbsp per gallon along with 1 tbsp meta per gallon. Citric is not added to directly to must prior to either primary or ml fermentation as its metabolism can lead to volatile acidity.

A rough approximate of weight is 1 tsp = 4 grams. We highly recommend using a scale to weigh the product for an accurate dose. We do not recommend relying on these rough conversions for accurate dosage rates.

How much citric acid should I use per gallon for cleaning equipment?
Kathy Dunn on Sep 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kathy. A bit late but hope this helps. I clean with ProxyClean (not available at MoreWine that I know of), rinse with water, then follow with a 70g/gallon citric acid solution in water. Then I rinse the citric with water and follow up with Star San sanitizer. So, ProxyClean, water rinse, citric acid, water rinse, sanitizer.
