Lactic Acid - 1 Normal - 1/2 gallon
Controlling the alkalinity of your brewing water can mean the difference between producing good beer and great beer. Our 1 Normal Lactic acid solution makes reducing alkalinity a breeze. The alkalinity of your brewing water can be determined by using HACH Water Quality Test Strips or referencing your local water report.
How to Use

Test your water for total alkalinity (ppm), divide that number by 50 and the result is the milliliters of 1N Lactic acid you would need to add per liter of water for alkalinity to be neutralized.
