Awkward to use. Simple litmus paper would be better

Making better cider, mead, and wine!
Great little kit at a reasonable price! I have some intro college-level chemistry in my past, but even without it, I’d say the kit is easy to use and comes with great instructions. The only thing that I would maybe like to see is a little plastic stand to set the test tube down in between filling it with the wine sample and preparing the NaOH. I bought this kit along with some wine pH strips for cider making after having had a few batches succumb to microbial spoilage during aging from low acid and high pH. Now that I keep my acidity in check, my troubles are gone AND the TA adjustments both pre and post ferment are making for much better tasting ciders! I can’t imagine making cider without diligent acid testing and adjustment now. It’s really helped me tone down some of my sharper fruit wines and bring life into insipid meads, too.

Hard to use
I thought I did a good job following the directions, but I couldn't make it work for me.

PH test kit
This is a simple PH test kit. I thought I was buying a kit to test Total Acidity (two different things).

Results are not very accurate & are vague at best

Only measures tartaric acid
I used this product a few times and always got a low acid reading. Being a novice wine maker at the time I didn't understand the different types of acids. After learning a bit more and looking back at the instructions I realized it only measures tartaric acid, which is the principal acid in wine grapes. If you are making wine from other fruits whose principal acid is malic or citric, or are taking a reading after the addition of acid blend (which is a blend of all 3) you aren't getting a correct reading.

Cheap but hard
Much less expensive than a pH meter with all the "potions" (storage, 4.00, 7.00) it requires. But it took me a while to read it properly. Patience and good light is what you need.

Plusses and minuses
It is hard to use and requires you have good eyesight and look at the color changes in good light. With a little practice it's usable. Maybe not for everyone, but it's not like it doesn't work.

What are the concentration levels of the Sodium Hydroxide and the Phenolphthalein? Thanks
A shopper on Mar 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: In my kit, purchased 07/2018, the NaOH is a 0.1N preparation while the indicator solution does not specify anything beyond phenolphthalein on the bottle. The kit instructions do not appear to give that info either.
Can this be used to test for acetic acid on vinager in the 4% to 6% range ?
A L on Aug 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This test is designed for overall acidity in wine and the range is not high enough to measure that high an acidity.
