Citric acid is an essential ingredient when it comes to wine making. Without this additive finding the right balance of acidity and sweetness can be difficult. At ESB we offer a wide range of wine brewing supplies. Whether you are looking for a wine making kit or specialized ingredients like citric acid we can help.
Citric acid is an additive that is used to balance the flavour in many wines. Although wines made from grapes already contain citric acid it is often necessary to add extra to complete the flavour profile. Citric acid adds the tart taste that wine is known for. Making wine at home only requires a few ingredients including grape or fruit juice concentrate, yeast and a few other additives.
Citric acid is also used to prevent the growth of bacteria during the fermentation stage. There is nothing worse than spending your time and resources on a batch of wine that is ruined by bacteria. With proper sterilization techniques and the use of additives you can reduce your chances of making a bad batch of wine.
