    $13 right now... For that price there isn't much to lose. Looks a lot like the pH meters I used
    in high school chemistry labs many moons ago. :)

    Double check the instructions. The latest batch we got required you hold it under the liquid
    for a minute before taking a reading. They seem to work well as we can follow our water
    treatment as we add...

    The universal poppets are your best bet. If you need to replace those style poppet with OEM
    poppets search for AEB poppet or long leg firestone poppet. Match it up with what you have, it
    will be eithe...

    Are they paper strips or plastic? The paper strips are notorious for unreliability and a very
    finite life.They are plastic actually, and the packaging itself looks relatively new.

    Any chance you have them upside down? It sounds stupid, but it happened to me. The thick part
    looks like it should be the handle, but itís the business end.I wish it was that easy, but
    nope, I was usi...

    Wow! I never figured out how to pry those little buggers out until tonight. This thread gave
    some great info: by first pushing UP on the legs I was able to dislodge the legs from the
    walls and then p...

    I'm actually married to a chemist :)She spent some time last night doing calculations to figure
    out how to make a buffered solution in the 4.6 - 6.2 range... The trouble is that most
    household items l...

    Wow, and I was even reading a website saying that the indicator chemicals used are very stable
    and that's why there is no special sealing or date codes on the package! Sounds like a con job.

    I have a couple of Spartanburg kegs with pin lock posts that I'm looking to replace. The
    current posts have some kind of non-removeable poppet held in place by metal clips and I can't
    get in there to ...

    I bought a vial of 4.6 - 6.2 range pH strips from my LHBS about a year ago but just got around
    to using them yesterday. I did an all-grain batch and wanted to test the pH of my mash, so I
    took out a t...
