Hi everyone
Usually I adjust PH for mashing grain by Lactic Acid, but I have Tartaric acid available now. Is it also suitable for adjusting PH for mashing or I should buy Lactic acid?

I believe phosphoric is the best option for acid adjustments. Lactic would be second. I bought 1-gallon of food grade 85% phosphoric acid for $40, which will basically last me forever.
