Five Star 5.2 pH Stabilizer

Five Star 5.2 pH Stabilizer

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Never worry about pH again! One tablespoon of 5.2 per 5 gallon batch and your water is instantly adjusted to the perfect pH of 5.2, no matter what your starting pH was. It will not add any flavors to your mash water whatsoever. 5.2 optimizes the enzymatic activity of your malt, helps to clarify the wort, and may even help to raise your starting gravities. Also, using 5.2 in the boil will give you more consistent hop usage, and will also keep hard water salts in solution, which will result in less scaling in your heat exchangers, fermenters, and kegs. If you are doing all-grain you add it to your mash water - 1 tablespoon per 5 gallon batch regardless of mash water volume. You do not need to add any extra to your Hot-Liquor tank or Boil Kettle.

I decided I wanted to try out the 5.2 Ph stabilizer as an experiment when I made my next batch of beer. Wow what a difference it made. The yeast went crazy and the airlock looked like a pressure valve on a pressure cooker. Really impressive.

Increases efficiency by 20%
Fantastic product. My well water and water filtration system in my new house has great tasting water, but due to high PH & total alkalinity was impacting the brew house efficiency compared to my previous location. I used this product with 6 brews and increased efficiency by 20%! Easy to use and no impact on taste and hitting my OG as planned!

Only in the Mash
I've been using this for years. 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons, set it, and forget it.

Works as Designed
Or local utility (EBMUD) delivers ~8.3 pH water; which is >30 times more alkaline than should be used for brewing. In turn, I use 5.2pH Stabilizer to manage down that number. Although I need to use 1.25x the suggested amount to get within range, I do usually get down to 5.3 or 5.4 pH.

Is it perfect? No.

Does it effectively work in my situation on Muni-water? Absolutely.

I then add various other items to get the water closer to the intended 'style'; epsom, calcium, gypsum, etc.

This really did work. I have heard that it’s hit or miss but it brought my ph down to 5.2 when I’ve been having a hard time getting below 5.6. 2 TBS in 10 gallons
