5.2 pH Stabilizer

(1/4) > >>

     I purchased this product from my local supplier (as a favor) that is supposed to stabilize the mash at a pH of 5.2 regardless of the original pH.   I don't yet own a titration kit, but the test strips hit on 5.2.
  10/16/04 was my first all grain batch with this product.

    It's called:  5.2 Stabilizer, by 5 Star Chemicals. 1-800-782-7019... IF you are interested.

Have any of you tried this stuff yet? ;D

Yeah, I use it in every beer I make now. Works like a charm -- just one less thing I have to worry about while brewing.  ;)

I second (or third) that! I'm on a well and my water ph ranges from 7.5 to 8.5 depending on the season. I use 5.2 in my mash and it sets my mash ph right on the money every time.  I wouldn't brew without it.


OK, so what does it cost and where do you get it?

B3 has it, and it's approx $12 for a jar / bottle that will last for a long time.
