Brew for Africa PH Test Strips For Coloured Solutions (20s)
Brew for Africa PH Test Strips For Coloured Solutions (20s)
Art. nr. B01332
Product Description
These indicator strips are a quick and easy way to measure the pH (acidity) of coloured solutions (such as wort) and are therefore suitable for establishing the pH of the mash during brewing. Other pH testing strips are difficult to use for brewing, because the wort causes discolouration of the indicator pads and thereby false readings. These strips have the reference bands incorporated on the strip itself, which means that both the indicator area and the reference bands are subject to the same amount of discolouration, so they still provide a reliable reading. The pH range of these strips runs from 5.5 to 3.8 in steps of 0.3. For most beers the ideal pH range of the mash is generally considered to be 5.2 to 5.4 For more details see the instruction manual.
