DetailsThe 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.

4.5 / 5.019 ReviewsPh paperLove this product easy to use and simple to read mJanuary 30, 2016Easy and cheapThe 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.February 28, 2014Easy to use, quick resultsI 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.January 12, 2014in the ball parkI 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.October 16, 2013Gives me a rough idea if I'm in the rangeThe 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.September 14, 2013In a pinchIt 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.July 23, 2013Fast and easyIts 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.May 22, 2013Good for a check of general water conditionsI 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!May 18, 2013works okThese 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.April 28, 2013Useful for mashingI 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.April 1, 2013
