Generally soil is not acidic although it can be. Use lime or egg shells to keep soil neutral or slightly basic. Also if you use good compost it will help to keep the soil pH just where you want it.

your best option.."IMO" is to run ph adjusted water through your pots and test the runoff. eg.. if you're pouring in 6.5 and runoff is 7 or above, you probably have a problem.
Lime works as a 'buffer' (works at keeping your soil neutral @7.0) BUT... it requires "time" in order to work, and 'should' be added to the soil prior to planting.
Adjust your water and feeds to a lower ph to compensate for high soil acidity..IMO/E
