Ok....so I understand the different options now for measuring lactic acid. Let's say Bru'n water has predicted a ph of 5.4 and I measure a ph of 5.5 after about ten min.
Are you saying I should go under that profile I have in Bru'n water for that recipe and and see how much lactic acid it takes to lower the ph by.1?

In order to avoid overdosing the acid, using the software to estimate what that additional acid dose should be, is wise. Yes, you can use the tool that way.
