Default found a cheap source for ColorpHast strips

Just lookin' around for a starburst stir bar, came across the VWRLabshop site. Since I'm placing a buy anyway, I'm looking for other stuff I could use.

em-9590-1 colorpHast* pH Test Strips, EMD Chemicals


Lots of different versions available, but you can get the 4.0-7.0 narrow-range strips, 100 for $15.40.

At Northern Brewer (pretty representative pricing), the same strips, same 100 pack, retails for $40.99.

Just an FYI I thought someone might find useful.

Stuff was delivered today. Pretty quick service. Stoked, I'll be able to keep closer track of pH now (at the price of the strips at NB, you almost might as well just buckle down and buy a meter).
