 Acid Test Kit

Used to determine the Total Acidity in a wine, the Acid Test Kit is an invaluable tool for any home winemaker. Total Acidity measurements are important to winemaking because the correct amount of acidity is key to maintaining a wine which is balanced in flavor and stable for ageing. Acid titration allows the winemaker to adjust (increase) the starting acid levels for longer term aging of wine.

The Acid Test Kit contains:
Sodium Hydroxide 120mL (4 fl.oz.)
Indicator Solution 15mL (0.5 fl. oz.)
Reusable Plastic Syring 10cc (0.3 fl.oz)
Reusable Test Container 30cc (0.9 fl.oz.)

Acidity provides the crisp, slightly tart taste of wine on your palate. Too little acid, and your wine tastes flabby and non-committal. Too much acid, and your taste buds scream for relief. When acids are properly countered by the other ingredients in wine (such as alcohol, sugars, trace minerals, etc.), the wine is said to be “in balance”, which is the desired end result of all winemakers.

Reagent Stability Information:

Sodium Hydroxide Solution – 0.1 Normal (2 year shelf life cool & closed, 3 month shelf life cool and opened)
Phenolphthalein Indicator – 1.0% (5 year + Shelf life)
