Cider pH - What's the average?
 
What's the pH of some ciders you've brewed? Mine have been ranging from 3.6 - 4.0.

I just measured my Cider PH at 3.6. This after 3 week primary ferment and before transferring to secondary. SG from 1.051 to 1.000.

My 2012 batches ran from about 3.4 to 3.7, prefermentation. Anything above 3.8 is getting on the high side. That's as measured with a calibrated pH meter; when I used litmus strips I got higher numbers. The strips are said to be inaccurate, on top of being difficult to read properly.

pH should drop during fermentation. I haven't been measuring it post-ferment, probably should!
