Lactic Acid


Lactic Acid is used to lower brewing water’s pH, commonly used in commercial breweries. Lactic Acid can also be used to add sour or tart flavor to a beer before bottling. Adding Lactic Acid to a beer is a shortcut or alternative to kettle souring with lactic acid bacteria, which converts sugars into acid. You can add lactic acid to your glass or to a primed beer just before bottling for sour flavor. Always taste test on a small sample before dosing a full batch.
