Ok, so, I know what it does, why I need it, and I do need it (unless there is a better suggestion). I am making a melomel and I am trying with cherry for the first time which is very acidic and after 4 days the PH is now around 2. Long story short, I bought K Carbonate to combat the issue, except, the package says it needs to be refrigerated for a month after application. To my knowledge, the goal is to keep it at around 3.6+ during fermentation, and cold crashing will suspend the fermentation so that doesn't seem logical. Can I just toss in the required amount and let it keep doing its thing or am I supposed to wait til the end of fermentation? I cant find any serious info on what to actually do with potassium carbonate in mead, just a lot of people explaining how it works and why you should use it. I, and I think others, will appreciate the help.
