Default Measuring Mash PH

What's the best piece of test equipment to measure mash pH?

Thanks!

James

if you are going to measure and then compensate for the pH during the mash you need a meter that reads quickly and is temperature compensated. I bought one like this on Ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Digital-Wate...item2ec5218f2d You still need to cool the wort but I use a metal measuring cup into which I scoop just enough wort for the reading and set it in ice water to cool. I do BIAB and with that I get conversion in less than 20 minutes so I need the reading quickly if I am going to adjust. This meter reads quickly enough for that.

I won't buy anything from Hong Kong anymore.
I use this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hanna-Checke...item27b5349506
It has a replaceable probe, and mine has lasted years.
BTW, you also need some buffer solution. Get a bottle of 4ph and a bottle of 7ph for calibrating. You'll also want some storage solution, which is the same chemical as what is in the probe. It will help make the probe last a long time.
