Used to lower the acidity of wine. Use before
fermentation. 1/2 oz reduces acidity by 1 ppt in 6 US gallons
of wine. Be sure to perform an acid test so you don't overshoot
your desired acidity. Also called precipitated chalk.

7/16/2006 – I have a receipe for Rhubarb wine that calls for "precipitated chalk". What is this and what role does it play in the process. Do you have this product?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Precipitated chalk is calcium carbonate (we have it). It is used to lower the acidity of wines. Here is a link to that product.
7/11/2006 – I have been making wine for 3 years now. This is the first year I am paying attention to the acidity and I am confused. When titrating I am getting a .25% tartaric acidity. This is for cherry wine. I know that the range is suppose to be .55-.65 according to the acidity kit I have. I titrated with 1/10N. sodium hydroxide. To me this seems . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It sounds like it is low on acid to me. A good thing to do is to give it a taste...does it seem high our low? Another is to take a small amount, like a cup or so, and add some acid blend. See if your readings go up or down.
