I am attempting to preserve the shelf life of ice tea up to six months with citric acid, I need a perfected ratio?
I have tried several ratio, but still end up with molds in a week time not refrigerated.
The last ratio I tried was 4 cups of warm filtered water 3 of 1/8 of a teaspoon of citric acid. 27 bags of tea steep
also tried again,but this time with less tea bags.
17 bags...still horrible smell and mold!
Does anyone know a ratio that can prolong at least 3-6 months with out being refrigerated?
