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: Kathy, I use two (2) tbsp of potassium metabisulftie to one (1) tbsp citric acid per gallon of water. This makes a strong sanitizing/cleaning solution that I use every day in my small “boutique” winery. I keep a spray bottle of this solution to use to clean and sanitize everything that touches my wine. Cheers. Val
