Five Star 5.2 pH Stabilizer

Five Star 5.2 pH Stabilizer

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Never worry about pH again! One tablespoon of 5.2 per 5 gallon batch and your water is instantly adjusted to the perfect pH of 5.2, no matter what your starting pH was. It will not add any flavors to your mash water whatsoever. 5.2 optimizes the enzymatic activity of your malt, helps to clarify the wort, and may even help to raise your starting gravities. Also, using 5.2 in the boil will give you more consistent hop usage, and will also keep hard water salts in solution, which will result in less scaling in your heat exchangers, fermenters, and kegs. If you are doing all-grain you add it to your mash water - 1 tablespoon per 5 gallon batch regardless of mash water volume. You do not need to add any extra to your Hot-Liquor tank or Boil Kettle.

Didn't work for me.
I have HARD HARD water. I added the stabilizer and the stuff turned into a cloudy mess that coated all my equipment in seconds with a chalk that had to be scoured off with CLR. I am sure it was due to the water I brew with But this was a disaster. I had to dump the whole mess. and the PH didn't come close to 5.2
Best to test this with a small pot of water first to be sure you like the results.

This really did work. I have heard that it’s hit or miss but it brought my ph down to 5.2 when I’ve been having a hard time getting below 5.6. 2 TBS in 10 gallons

Mystery Powder
Just brewed with this yesterday for the second time...and my pH strips continue showing no change in pH whatsoever. Not sure if it's the Stabilizer powder or the strips, but something's not working. Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.
