Default 5 star ph stabilizer

I made my first AG batch yesterday and everything seems to have gone pretty smoothly. I was reflecting last night over a pint and realized I did make one error for sure. I misread the directions and used 1 tbsp per gallon instead of 1 tbsp per five gallons. Anyone familiar with this product and have any ideas what the effect on my brew might be?

That is a lot of brewing salts in the beer. I would contact them and see what they had to say---just to be safe.

You used 5* the recommend rate?

5.2 is a blend of sodium salts of phosphate, so you added a lot of sodium. IIRC Kaiser added 5.2 to some water and got in analyzed and at the recommended rate it added about 100 ppm sodium so you added 500 ppm sodium. I doubt that is going to negatively affect fermentation, the beer may or may not taste a bit salty. You'll have to wait and see.

Well You live and learn right? So if it is salty I guess no pretzels with this beer!
