(PH430) This hand-held, digital pH meter is a great value for home winemakers and brewers alike. And, it's from Hanna Instruments – a leader of scientific instruments. This pH tester can be used on both wine or beer to determine their pH in seconds. pH refers to the acidity of the wine or beer. It accurately measures pH between 0.0 to 14.0, down to 1/10th of a pH. It's extremely portable and has a pocket clip so it's always handy between uses. As an added bonus, E. C. Kraus also includes with its pH meters calibration solution and rinse so you can instantly calibrate your pH meter for the first time. Calibration is easily done with this meter by turning a single screw until the meter reads 4.0. Hanna even includes the screwdriver. Runs on (3) 1.5v batteries for approximately 100 hour of use that are included. Comes in it's own protective, plastic case with detailed directions that show you how to use this pH meter. Don't equate this hand-held pH meter to copied, look-a-likes. This is the real deal from Hanna Instruments: Model HI96107.

I purchased a PH meter from you so I could check the acid in the wine I make from grapes I grow. The catalog said the meter would come with full instructions, yes it did for operation of the meter, but not what readings I should look for in my wine. Some of the things I have read give the acid content in percentages. Am I right in converting PH readings to percent that PH 7 would be 0%, PH 3.5 would be 50%, and PH 0 would be 100%? What is the best PH reading for wine?
When the acid content is given in percentages, it is testing all of the tasteable acids. Whereas the pH tests all of the total acids. Therefore, you cannot convert pH readings into percentages. You are looking for a reading in between 3.8 to 3.4 pH.

I was wondering, can your digital pH meter be used to test vinegar?
Yes, our digital pH meter will test the pH levels in vinegar.
|Q||Sandra (Loveland, CO)
I see that the pH meter will test the pH levels in vinegar. Can it also be used on water?
Yes, the digital meter will also accurately test the pH levels of water.
