Beermaking pH Paper

SKU: 7421

Free Shipping on Orders Over $125



The Beermaking pH Paper has a pH range from 4.6-6.2. These papers make it easy to test your water's pH balance to be able to make adjustments as needed. Dip a test strip in your water, and in less than 5 seconds you will get your reading. A color chart that comes with the strips will tell you the pH level of your water. The ideal pH for most beers is 5.2. A less accurate but more economical way to test the pH of your mash than the pH pen. 100 strips per vial.

Easy and cheap
The strips are good if you use them right.. Dip it in a sample, let it sit for a while, then read the color. Very easy and cheaper than a pH meter.

Easy to use, quick results
I see no reason to get a pH meter while having these strips handy._x000D_They give fast results without having to do anything._x000D_They might not be as accurarte as a meter but they seem ok.

in the ball park
I used these when first starting out. They are off by a few tenths of a pH, so ultimately I stopped using them. They gave me a rough estimate when I started out, before I decided to get a pH meter.

Gives me a rough idea if I'm in the range
The pH strips aren't super accurate but at least I know that I'm not way off my pH. So for teh price and convenience I like them.

In a pinch
It works fast with little overhead and can tell you if you are way off. If you expect a pH of 5.2 and this reads 6.0 you have a problem. Its not precise so it can be off .03 so don't count on that degree of accuracy.

Fast and easy
Its not perfect, but it's ok as a rough estimate if you don't have a good pH meter. They are inaccurate by around 0.3, so I suggest eventually buying a good pH meter.

Good for a check of general water conditions
I got this just to find out what my tap water PH was. I don't check often just wanted to get a feel to make sure it's in the correct range. _x000D__x000D_Like others have said they are not super accurate especially considering you have to "eye ball" the color scale. For $6 it's worth it to know that my water sources isn't screwing up my beers!

works ok
These work if you know how to use them. Take a sample out, dip it in that sample, let it sit for a while, then read the color. They are less expensive than a pH meter, but if you plan on checking your pH a lot you might want to think about getting a pH meter.

Useful for mashing
I use these strips while mashing, to make sure I don't leak tannins, and so the mash is effective. They are easy to use and give good results.
