I have a sample of cherry concentrate. 12 ounces at 68 brix. I am wanting to add this to a beer
for a sour, but don't want the brix or SG to get out of hand. Very vibrant cherry flavor so I
am not wor...

Yes this is an easy enough calculation to do and others have also requested that. I'll put this
on the top of my list. KaiThanks Kai!

This might be part of one of the spreadsheets/calculators out there and I am not seeing it.
What I am looking for is if my mash is at 5.8 pH and I want to get it to say 5.4 pH how much
acid am I going...

I may be wrong but what I thought the intent of the OP was how much acid to add to X amount of
wort/water/whatever at 5.8 pH to get down to 5.3 or wherever.I have the same question. Is there

if you want a Lambic then pitch something that is cultured for it. ie: WLP Sour Mix or the
Wyeast Roselare blend or some ECY. Why mess with the unkown? You are going to have a lot of
time invested in ...

Aaron, Thank you for the comments and confirmation of the predictions. It is good to have more
field results. You are the poster child of why the ratio needs to take a back seat to the total

You won't be able to keep the Ca level low as your desire for SO4 increases. As Yooper
mentions, 50 ppm Ca is a minimum and there is little penalty for going higher. I'm going to
have to dispute the 1...

thanks for the replies. I use Martin's worksheet and plugged the % in as 88% and added the
required acid amounts. It undershot the pH a bit so I added more in increments until I hit 5.35
pH and called...

I have (had) been using Lactic acid to lower the pH on my mash but was getting some of the
lactic tang flavor associated with it since I have to use a ton to lower pH. I have a bottle of
