I've purchased a couple of pH meters over the years, and because I didn't brew often enough, the electrodes would dry out and become junk. I've been just using ColorpHast pH papers since I got back into brewing a couple of years ago. They seem to work pretty well, but I'm thinking about buying another pH meter.

How do you store your pH meter between uses to keep it functioning?

Meter storage solution. Plus a little sponge inside the cap.

This thread is down in Brew Science.
The instructions for mine says to put PH4 solution in cap for storage.

I've put storage solution in the caps of my previous meters and they still dried out between uses.
