I've never heard of Acid #6, but there is Acid #5. I've seen it at some homebrew shops, but you might try asking around at a brewery. The smallest size container I've seen it in was a gallon jug, which should last practically forever for a homebrewer

I have been using Acid Cleaner #5 for years to remove beer stone with the added benefit, passivating and re-passivating my stainless steel tanks.
I get a case at a time directly from the manufacturer.

Depending on your brewing equipment, cleaning schedule, etc. it won't last too long.
The tanks still look like new after 15 years of use and no water stains

Not the same product and contains Hydrochloric Acid.

Acid Cleaner #5 & 6 is a mixture of Phosphoric and Nitric acid.

After looking at the links above, I decided to call Homebrew4less to see if they could get Acid Cleaner #6, considering a few of us on here were interested in it. He put in an order with his distributor and added it to his inventory while I was on the phone with him. I thought that was good form on his part. He said it's going to take about 10 days from today's date for the order to reach him, but it can be purchased now.

If you're interested in ordering Acid Cleaner #6, you can find it here for $29.99/gal.
