With the AA addition, I assume you would want to put it through a water calculator to take into account the pH affect?

I would think that if you use enough to affect the pH, you've used too much.

Assuming I will use it at the same rate as my NaMeta, if I put any other acid into Bru'n Water at that same rate... It don't do diddly squat to the pH.

It has no affect on pH. Metabisulfite does however.

But even that, at the levels used (<50ppm,) is within the margin of accuracy of my pH meter.  So I'll call that diddly, too, as a practical matter.

It’s important to track it though. Its -0.1 pH units per 100 ppm. For a modest 20 ppm dose that’s a -0.02 pH drop.

I’ve neen working with A.J. deLange on bringing his proton deficit pH model to the public integrated within a brewing sheet. It’s going to make all other standalone or embedded water calculators obsolete.

A result of that work was finally figuring out that Meta drops pH because by scavenging Oxygen it gives up two hydrogens or 2 mEq of Acid.

Derek, I watched the conversation unfold. When do you anticipate your development will be complete?

Probably a few weeks. I’ve written the lion’s share and incorporated A.J.’s troubleshooter (aka the “engine”) but I want A.J. to peer review it before it goes out.

It will be a brewday calculator with extract, volume tracking, sparging incorporated, bitterness (including whirlpool hops), color, and pH estimation. All the Low Oxygen stuff will be there too.
