what to do or how to store it de tween readings.

Keep the electrode in buffer 4.00 solution between readings?

...need to re-calibrate it for every reading I take during my brew day? I usually do, but I
don't have enough experience using pH meters to know for sure.

Tiber,What mash pH range would you suggest for a single infusion mash? I've had some success in
the mid 5.2 range, but was recently looking at Eric Warner's Kolsch book and he suggests a mash
pH of 5....

I don't follow this at all. If he has TA of 5 g/L and wants 7 g/L then he simply adds 2 g/L
malic and he's done. Then there is taste which is what this is really all about. Doesn't malic
taste more, w...
