Hello!
My Alkalinity is through the roof and I know i'll need to add Lactic Acid to the mash. The problem is in the mash section the Final Mash pH Adjustments don't give me Mash Acid Amount when I chose the Lactic Acid drop down. Am I doing something wrong or how do I figure how much to put in for 5.3 ph?

Some people prefer the BW model which returns a lot less acid for adjustment, but incremental is a good way to go.
