Mango Sour - when to add lactic acid?

Recommended Posts

I am brewing the sunshine Mango Sour recipe.  It says to add the lactic acid "right before bottling".  That wouldn't seem to give it enough time to difuse in the fermenter among all the beer.  I am thinking of adding it a day or two before bottling.  Any suggestions?

When I brew it I plan on adding it about an hour before bottling.

Any harm in adding lactic acid a few days early so it can spread around? Other recipes that use it like grapefruit gose from Mr Beer have you put it in a few weeks early.

Never done it but I don't see what it would hurt.
