Don't use acid or acid malt unless your brewing water has moderate to high alkalinity and there is an indication that the mash pH will not drop into the desirable 5.3 to 5.5 range without it. If you brew with a very low alkalinity water such as distilled or RO water, you may not need it at all.
Blind additions of acid malt, acid, or minerals without knowing or understanding what your brewing water needs is foolish. I've seen far too many recipes that tell you to add tablespoon of this or that. It might have been perfectly OK for the original brewer. But unless your water is similar, it could be just as easily the wrong thing to do. There really is a reason that brewers should know what their water is and what they should be doing to adjust it for their brew.
