Muriatic acid extraction
Posted 02 March 2005 - 10:48 PM
If I want to rehydrate it I can, then simmer it back down to a drinkable amount, but what if I wanted to make a larger amount of extract for long-term storage?

then all that is left is water
safe for transfer onto foil to finish the evaporative process

Dangerous. And always work in a well ventalated
This is somthang a beginer should be fully aware of.

if it's lower than water.
it will evap first
and like i told him,
you can tell when
because the acid smell will go away

would it be a good idea to let your acidic solution evap coimpleteley in a pot then redissolve it in a diffrent solvant like alcohol or something and re-evap it on something easier to scrape or something on what the residual substance wont stick too much?
only an idea
would it work?

This link, meteor says,"And yes, as it boils down the pH lowers and the acidity skyrockets because the acid is the last thing to evaporate. " So this must be incorrect? I also read another link in which Leprechaun says the same thing. Are these just mistakes then? I guess I'll have to try an experiment soon... I have some HCl but our ph meter broke, guess I'll have to do the old red cabbage ph paper...

apparently the boiling point varies a bit by the concentration ?
i see ranges from 127*F to 228*F at 20%
so perhaps indeed as the solution evaps
the acid concentrates which raises the boiling point,
preventing the last bit from evaping.
but i don't really think this applies to
the concentrations we get,
you can smell when the acid is gone,
i know from experience.
if one were inclined to de-acidify all that would be needed to do this is a dash of baking soda in the brew
