Much much better than pH strips Review by Simon

(Posted on 3/22/14)

Product Rating:

It's a lot more accurate, and gives better results. The only drawback is the recalibration before each use.

Better than pH strips Review by Dan

Product Rating:

The pH strips have a wide range and seem to be off a couple of points. This meter on the other hand is accurate and helps me stay in a much narrower range. The only maintenance it requires is keeping the electrode wet in buffer solution.

Good pH meter Review by JD

Its pretty accurate, and is better than the pH strips. I wouldn't say its easy to use, because of the calibration and storage, but it's good overall.

Affordable - but high maintenance Review by OD

Product Rating:

When you factor in the cost of the liquids you need to keep this going, its cost rises. And the electrode wears out after a couple of years. So the overall price is higher than it appears. If buying again, I'd go with a better model.

Its lasted 2 years so far Review by Parker

Product Rating:

Its holding up after 2 years of use for both wine and beer making. I take care to store it in its solution so the electrode doesn't fail. Its better than the paper strips.

used for measuring Mash pH Review by Drew

(Posted on 7/16/13)

Product Rating:

Its more accurate than the paper strips. I use it to make sure my pH isn't too high (Tanins) or low (which can cause problems with the taste ). I like the checker but it's annoying to have to calibrate all the time, and to have to keep it stored in solution. Useful but annoying.

Not as good as a $100 pH tester but it's a lot better than the test strips. Review by Nadim

Product Rating:

You will end up paying a lot for the calibration solutions and it isn't super accurate. But it's still good enough to use. I calibrate it each time I use it and it does shift a lot.

Overall, a worthwhile investment Review by Nadim

Product Rating:

It gives pretty good accuracy, and is better than the plastic pH test strips that are for sale. Its downside is having to calibrate, and the cost of the fluid. It's still a good purchase overall.

Good enough Review by Brewer

(Posted on 4/4/13)

Product Rating:

It's not a great pH checker but it's good enough for brewing. If it's off by 0.1 that's not too a big deal. A hidden cost is the price of the storage and calibration solutions. They have to be used each time it's used, and they are not cheap.
