Description

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.

Only in the Mash
I've been using this for years. 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons, set it, and forget it.

Works as Designed
Or local utility (EBMUD) delivers ~8.3 pH water; which is >30 times more alkaline than should be used for brewing. In turn, I use 5.2pH Stabilizer to manage down that number. Although I need to use 1.25x the suggested amount to get within range, I do usually get down to 5.3 or 5.4 pH.

Is it perfect? No.

Does it effectively work in my situation on Muni-water? Absolutely.

I then add various other items to get the water closer to the intended 'style'; epsom, calcium, gypsum, etc.

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.
