Acid Blend – For use in Wine and Cider

Acid BlendMost 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.

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

Mix ratio

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

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.”
