Fine product for a good price
Awkward to use. Simple litmus paper would be better
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.
Pretty simple testing method. I had no problem getting the right result.
I thought I did a good job following the directions, but I couldn't make it work for me.
