Re: Help My First Mead!
To bring your pH down you'll want to add acid blend and bring it to anywhere between 3.4 - 3.8. You may want to invest in a digital pH meter, litmus paper is a pain in the guzica, and hard to get anything more than a ballpark estimate.
If you're going to tweak your must some more I'd suggest putting about 8 ounces in a pyrex measuring cup and adding your acid to that in 1/8 teaspoon increments, testing the pH each time. Once you hit the right pH just divide your total batch volume by 8 and that will tell you how many 1/8 teaspoon doses (Divide by 8 again, and it will tell you how many full teaspoon doses) you need to bring your batch into proper pH range.
Also, when posting please give us a line break every two or three sentences. It makes the posts easier to read and understand.
