Hands on Review: Milwaukee MW102 and PH55 pH Meters

If you’re like me when I was new to all-grain brewing, you were reading every post and homebrew book out there trying to figure out why your mash conversion efficiency was so much lower than you planned/wanted/expected. I came across some reference to mash pH and its effect on conversion efficiency, filed it under “way too complicated and science-y for a hobby”, and moved onto something easier to relate to. I bought a pack of pH test strips and used them once and realized the color looked slightly like none of the marks on the box and simultaneously like all of the marks. I again shoved this pH stuff to the background of my homebrew brain.

Now, several years in, I’m more comfortable with my processes, equipment and recipe creation, and am looking to chase out any variables that can negatively affect my beer. Reading brewing literature in pursuit of better beer, I can no longer ignore the emphasis they place on a target mash pH when brewing light colored and light bodied beers.
