Lactic Acid 88% - 100ml
Lactic Acid is primarily used in brewing to reduce the pH of brewing water to ensure the optimum pH for enzyme activity during the mash.
It may also be used to reduce the pH of sparge water to reduce the risk of tannin extraction.
In Germany, some breweries will maintain lactic fermentations and use the resulting liquid to make pH adjustments during the brewing process without breaking Reinheitsgebot.
Before adding lactic acid to your brewing water you should obtain a water analysis report to enable you to calculate the potential impact on the mash pH. Refer to the Brewing Resources page for some links to water chemistry calculators.
