Hey, welcome back! It's nice to see you back on the forum. Glad to see you're back to your old self, or at least getting there!
At what point does the pH drop really impact fermentation? You said to bring it up if it's at or below 3.0, but is there a "close" at say, 3.1 or 3.2, that would signal some potential problems?
What I'm asking is, can you forestall a complete stall by catching it at 3.2 and adding nutrients, thus avoiding having to add the K2CO3? And does CaC03 have a similar effect?
