Well, this proves that Santa doesn't care who is naughty and nice.

This PH meter is really sweet. Auto temperature adjustment, decimals in the hundrenths. Much more then I really need, but I will take it!

Sweet!! Do you have to store it in a buffer, or calibrate it everytime??

Yes, the electrode needs to be stored in a 4 ph buffer. It is recommended it be calibrated every 15 uses and has an icon to tell you when this should be. It also recommends that you calibrate it daily for complete accuracy, so we will see how that plays out. I figure if it is sitting in buffer solution anyway, why not calibrate it. The calibration is really easy.

You're winning the "the one who dies with the most toys wins" race around here by a long shot! Are you trying to lap everyone again?

BTW - have you been a Mod for a long time or did I just not notice before?

I've been a Mod for a couple months, I just am quiet about it.

I do have the toys, but it is my only real vice! Besides, I think of them as TOOLs, not toys.

If I called them tools, I'd think I was working and wouldn't enjoy myself as much

I am an old protestant and we have this thing about guilt, so "toys" denotes pleasure, whereas "tools" does denote work. And so if I call all of this work and tools I don't have to be burdened with the guilt. In the same way I have all of these "toys" at work so I feel guilty about going to work. It really is a nice little system.

I thought it was only Catholic priests who used "toys" at work?

No, they use B oys, not T oys.

pH meters have gone a long way. . . I remember working in the lab, and one of my jobs was to calibrate the old pH meters--they were literally the size of a desktop computer with wires, different probes, and you had to use different buffers, etc. It really sucked.

I see the Brewing "Arms Race" has just been heightened. . .I'm going to have to tell my wife my intents on getting a good pH meter now. . .
