Ascorbic Acid - 1 oz (28 g)
Oxidation can be a real culprit when it comes to beer brewing and winemaking, as it will alter some of the flavour compounds in the finished drink and gradually reduce its stability, shortening the shelf life of the product you’ve spent so much energy creating. Fortunately, Ascorbic Acid can solve this problem.
Commonly known as Vitamin C, this organic acid has strong antioxidant properties. It acts as a preservative for the finished beer, wine, cider, mead, and other homemade beverage, improving the product's storage potential.
Please Note: Use in white wines is discouraged as certain flavour compounds common in this type of wine are caused by the process of oxidation, which is inhibited by Ascorbic Acid.
