5 ml of lactic acid? Seems like a lot in addition to CaCl and Gypsum you adding. Do you use water software of some sort? What is your water profile? I have really hard and alkaline water and to lower my mash pH I add about 0.2-0.3 ml/gal of lactic acid and 0.2-0.3 gr/gal of CaCl and Gypsum. Sorry to be off-topic

I use this.

Works great. I calculate the additions and assume it is some what accurate- I still need to get a good pH meter. Wheat beers seem to need a lot more acid.
