Five Star 5.2 pH Stabilizer 4oz
Five Star 5.2 pH Stabilizer 4oz:
- Optimize the enzymatic activity of your malt.
- Help clarify your wort.
- More consistent hop usage in the boil.
- Reduce scaling & mineral deposition in the lauter.
5² is a proprietary blend of food-grade phosphate buffers (similar to brewer’s salts) that will lock in your mash and kettle water at a pH of 5² regardless of the starting pH of your water. 5² is safe for your mash and WILL NOT add any flavors to your beer. 5² will provide consistency of pH in any water conditions, but the most significant gains will be obtained if you are brewing in hard water.
Use 5² at a rate of approx 1/3oz for 5 US gallons of water. Calculate the amount of water based on the total volume in the kettle. Place 5² in the mash tun while you are mashing in. If desired, dissolve in a small amount of water before adding to the mash.

Bang on pH

Did multiple tests, all had a spot on 5.2 pH reading.

Locked in my pH perfectly. It's not supposed to improve efficiency as the previous poster suggested. Works great!
Not worth it

Just used this and was pretty disappointed with the fact that it didn't help improve my efficiency at all.
