Trick to calibrate pH meters
I miss placed my solution to calibrate my pH meter right before I was to brew my mead. I looked up some common liquids with pH and found that Milk has a constant 6.7 to 6.8 pH. So I calibrated my pH meter with milk I let sit to room temps. I rinse my meter after every test and I never put the solution back into the carboy.
After the brew session and I was putting everything away I found my calibration solution... for giggles I tested it out, and sure enough my pH meter was calibrated to the 2nd decimal (7.00 that's a tenth right, man I'm getting old)
I think I'm going to stick to milk instead of buying calibration solutions. Since milk manufactures are articulate about pH of their milk.
Hope this helps someone
Informative post though, I'm sure it'll help someone. :mug:
