Citric will etch if you leave something in it for too long (say 12+ hours). I mix about 4 tablespoons in a gallon. Honestly i eyeball it. I like to soak then scrub a couple times over. Not sure about the brass. Some guys dont like it on saws, i personally dont mind it but i deal with red rust a lot where i live. Tough stuff.
