Re: PH tester

Has anyone tried this pH tester, https://www.rapidonline.com/Voltcraft-PHT-02-ATC-pH-Meter-51-5152. I have no experience of pH meters and would value any reviews or comments on this model. Is maintaining the probes much of a faf? Thanks M Looks perfectly fine. But I’d grab this in the same budget. ...

Re: PH tester

Exactly! That's why I'm looking at this one, think I'll give it a go. Never had a meter before but have always wondered if it could improve things. Also making cider for the first time this year and it seems pH is quite important.

Thanks for the replies.

I have bought a scratter and am building a press using RSC's, threaded rod and a bottle jack. Can anyone recommend the best cloth to use to make...

Re: South East water profiles

The website give my CaCO3 as 265. Wally brew gives 269. It never varies by more than a point or two but we are less than a mile from the waterworks /pumping Station. Water pressure was 12 bar before we had it reduced. :shock:

Re: Single element

I can't answer the question you asked, but it could be worth trying another gas supplier, mine is happy to change one bottle type for another. Yep, one local dealer here won't help at all, another one is happy to swap patio gas for standard propane. The calor website has (had?) a guide to allowed s...
