Checking the acid of my Elderberry Juice. It is coming up .1875 %. I want assume I'll want to check this again after I add my juice to necessary water/grape concentrate. Is this correct? What I've read acid % should be around .65% for this after adjusting.
 
If you are just adding water - it will lower the acid level - not sure - but the concentrate might raise it a little - but the addition of water might cancel it out.

But - i will take another acid reading after adding all that - be sure to give a good stir to get it mixed in.

.60-.65 is good for fruit.

So your juice is .1875
Meaning very low ????

Or did I misread the figure ???

The juice should indeed be at 5. to .7

Juice itself was very low, as was excected based on what I read. It was adjusted after other ingredients were added to .65
