    Thanks William. I'll get a bag of that.

    The CDL acid got down to about a pH of 2.5 after adding about a pound of acid. Is it about the same amount with the Milliard acid?

    Citric Acid

    Is the citric acid the maple companies sell anything special? Is there a reason why I can't get it from say Amazon? Link below for one I found that's food grade.

    Thanks for checking. When I saw it stop at 104, I thought it was odd when the soap instructions say to reach ~110F. I have a CDL membrane.

    H2O Rinse/Wash Cycle
