    Making Summer Sausage with Encapsulated Citric Acid...I would like to get the ph to shelf stability around 4.6-4.8.

    How much ECA do I need for a 10lb batch to get to the ph level of around 4.6-4.8?

    You are going to have to do a search... check with suppliers of ECA.... There may be a difference in manufacturers... that amount to add could be different....

    Shelf stability will also depend on any extra seasonings, herbs, or fillers that you added. Some of them, if used fresh, may also pose a challenge.
