The rainfall here is 34.2" annually.  Most our rain fall from April to September.  The bag of sulfur I have consists of granular sulfur which is irregular shapes approximately 1/16" in diameter.  I do have Three large concolors in my front yard and one in the back yard.

Thanks for responding to my questions.  I live in NW Iowa and we usually have adequate rainfall in the spring and fall with hot humid summers.  Most of the conifers around here are one or two in people's yards.  The 6.5 pH came from the bag of sulfur.  The label mentioned 5.6 to 6.5 for golf course greens, tees, and fairways.  I would be happy to achieve a 7.0 pH for my yard.  I did a soil test according to the instructions from the Iowa State Soil Testing Laboratory.  The extension office provided a plugging tool to take the samples in approximately twelve different areas in my yard.  The results of the soil test are as follows.  ppm P 36, ppm K 264, pH 7.6.  I am trying to move the PH to a more grass friendly number.

I am trying to reduce my soil PH from7.6 to 6.5 on my lawn.  I have a 50 lb. bag of sulfur.  The label on the bag lists several spreader settings.  All of the spreaders Andersons Accu Pro /SR2000, Andersons SS2, and Scott's rotaries R8 and R8A are professional spreaders for golf courses.  Is it possible to use a regular spreader and calculate the proper setting for 2.2 lbs. / 1000 Sq. Ft.  Thanks I appreciate any help I can get.
