How much to add? nice additive addition reduction tool
Acid TA and g/L issue for use of the tool at
0.78 TA is same as 7.8 g/L for winebusiness/tool site
Adjusting the TA UP↑
Tartaric acid is used to increase the acid in winemaking if needed. If the initial TA (total acid) of the
juice is below .60, a winemaker would want to use tartaric acid to increase the acid.
If the pH is high, such as a 3.5 in a juice, the winemaker would want
to increase the acid using tartaric. Tartaric acid will drop out during cold stabilizing if over used.
Do not used citric
acid to increase the acid in a low acid wine. It is a strong
acid and will not drop out during stabilization, if you overdose. The only way to reduce citric acid is with
Do not use citric acid if you are planning a malolactic
It is used to neutralize cleaning with barrel kleen or soda
ash. We use Citric acid in combination with potassium or sodium metabisulfite for a strong cleaning solution.

The recommendation of
less ACID BLEND is based on the use of citric acid
in these blends.
Malic acid use in wine
would have to be a recommendation and not from me. It is reduced during a malolactic fermentation. It is a
component of acid blend.
Ascorbic acid is a
great anti-oxidant in canning peaches. It is used in hydrogen sulfide procedures. One of our winemakers bought some
for his coffee pot!
We also carry tannin (dark in color) but not tannic acid.
The addition of tannin increases the astringency of wines, which we are accustomed to in reds. Use per
recipe. If you overdose the tannin, fine with gelatin. It will remove the tannin.
