What do I add if the ph is too low? More acid? Or salt and water?
Ph is low on the pickle. Add acid?
the pickle should have the Ph of 1 to 2 correct? What does your's read? If it is higher than that say Ph 3 or higher you need more acid to lower it to between 1 and 2.
If you want a lower pH, add acid. If you want a higher pH, add baking soda.
A new development has come up here, Thanks Bruce Rittel. Bruce corrected me on what I thought I knew, thanks again There are some acids that run a higher Ph. I didn't know that. What kind of acid are you using and having issues with?
His question was" what do I add if the pH is too low?". The simple answer is, you add baking soda to raise the pH.
You are correct Tanglewood. That is the simple answer but I think there is more to this than that, I may be wrong but, how do you get lower than 1 Ph to begin with? The OP dropped out of discussion it appears so we won't likely know what it is exactly they were doing. Not a waste though thanks to Mr Rittel I learned something. Thanks again.
Ya, can you get lower than 1? I have read where some who home tan think anything below 2 is too "hot". I have pickled at 1.5 up to 2.5 with safety acid achieving about the same results.
