what would be the dangers of adding potassium bicarbonate to lower acid levels and bottle, with out cs
I'm not sure if there are any dangers. I have used pot. bicarb. on a couple of batches and did not do cs and those batches where OK and quite tasty. Just be careful as to how much you use.
Julie what type of wines did you do this on...and what acid levels did you start at and end?
be very careful, it doesnt take much. By the bottle it will be very hard to get right. I have done whole batches but never a bottle. There is an idea acid post on site that lists idea acid levels for different wines. Use test strips and go slow. Low acid sucks too
