Acid Blend


Acid Blend is a careful blend to the correct ration of the three most commonly found fruit acids: citric acid, malic acid, and tartaric acid.

SKU: acid-blend Category:


Most wine recipes will only call for citric acid, however, this will not produce the best wine. The acid balance of grapes comprises 50% tartaric, 40% malic and 10% citric. The best acid blends are not equal amounts of the acids, but a formulation of the acids to provide the best end result in a wine.

We use a mix that provides the correct acid balance for any wine
45% Tartaric Acid, 35% Malic Acid’ 20% Citric Acid.

For best results always use Acid Blend as a direct substitute for citric acid mentioned in recipes.

What books say about mixed acids:

Progressive Winemaking by Peter Duncan & Bryan Acton
“Experiments with acid-deficient musts have indicated that neither citric, malic or tartaric acids on their own provide a perfect acid balance. The best results were in fact achieved with a mixture of these three acids.”
