Reducing acid content in secondary ??

perry(Z4/Iowa)November 6, 2006

Can I reduce acid content in the glass secondary fermenter? I did not reduce it enough in the primary. What do you use for this, calcium carbonate? Any info would be appreciated.

Yep, calcium carbonate works well in the secondary to raise the pH. Just be careful to add it in small doses and stir really well to get it distributed.
