Where can one purchase a good winemaking pH meter without mortgaging one's
home? Unfortunately a gardener's pH meter is precluded for winemaking
purposes due to the acidic pH ranges applicable to winemaking (2.80 - 3.50).
I've become obsessed with the idea of basing SO2 additions on the must's pH
and the amount of free SO2 already present. I've come to believe that using
"ballpark" SO2 additions or basing SO2 additions on anything else (like a
recipe) is just "shooting in the dark".
To do this correctly one needs very accurate pH readings (the paper strips
just don't hack it!)
Thanks in advance.
