Brewing pH Paper 3.8 to 5.4 (100 strips)


40 strips of Brewing pH strips. It has 8 different color steps between the narrow range of 3.8 to 5.4 which makes it ideal for very precise pH calibration for your beer mashing and kombucha. pH is important for 3 reasons:

  1. Beer mashing requires a lot of enzyme action over a 2-4 hour long heat cycle. Having the right pH and temperature is crucial to achieve the best mashing efficiency.
  2. Young must (grape juice) needs an acidic medium to fend off mold infection.
  3. The amount of SO2 (Campden) one needs to add in finished wine depends strongly on the pH of the bottled wine.

Please note that this is made from Bromocresol Green(BCG) and not Litmus paper. Hence, it will change color at 0.4 intervals

This innovative pH strip solves the following headaches:

  1. Electronic pH meter tends to lose calibration. Which means one needs to use pH buffer to calibrate it every 15 minutes
  2. Ordinary Litmus Paper is very hard to read as the color changes very slowly in a narrow pH range
  3. It is handy portable and inexpensive which makes it ideal for a hobby brewer.
  4. For a professional brewer, dipping a piece of paper in wort is faster and more accurate than taking a pH reading using a desktop pH meter or titration equipment.

pH strip have an accuracy of 0.2 pH levels which is good for most brewing applications and better than the cheap handheld pH meters. Store these strips away from moisture, SO2, Chlorine and Sunlight for the color chart to stay accurate.
