Regular price $3.50 Sale

Used mainly for acidifying a new oak barrel or when cleaning a used barrel.  Always dissolve in water before adding.  Use 2 teaspoons for every 5 gallons of barrel capacity.  Can also be added to potassium metabisulfite sanitizing solution to lower pH and make the sanitizing solution more effective.

Occasionally used to acidify white wines but, generally, tartaric acid is preferred.
