Good enough Review by Tiberiu

I used these to see if the PH goes up enough to extract tannins when I steep my specialty grain. Easy to use and told me what I needed to know. (Posted on 10/24/13)
Not Impressed Review by EGB

I have had no success with these strips and think I will be attempting to get a return here. The strips all come out at the same color. (Posted on 12/11/12)
You get what you pay for Review by Nathan

These pH test strips are cheap, but if your mash contains lots of dark malts the color from that will influence the reading. Poor absolute accuracy. However, they are an affordable way for determining when the sparge pH is starting to creep. (Posted on 11/28/12)
Worthless Review by Sean
Rating
Simply put, these "economy" strips don't work. The color change due to the color of the wort is far greater than that due to any actual pH shift. The ColorpHast strips can be used for mash pH measurements, but not these. (Posted on 5/4/12)
Not for StarSan Review by Travis
It should be noted these strips are not useful for testing out sanitizer (.e.g. Star San). These strips are for a pH range of 4.6-6.2. You need the other strips which will read lower levels of pH in order to effectively test your Star San solution. (Posted on 4/11/11)
Not precise enough Review by Andrew
Rating
The 0.4 pH units level of precision is fairly coarse for a mashing process where most identify the ideal mash pH range as 5.2-5.4.

On the plus side, they are easy to use and relatively inexpensive. I purchased these over a digital pH meter because the digital meter required its probe to be constantly immersed in the buffer solution, and that was too high-maintenance for me. (Posted on 3/31/11)
Works great Review by HMC

I use these to test the pH of the mash shortly after the dough-in, as the right pH is important for the proper conversion of sugars and its effect on the beer (especially for light beers). They are easy to use, pretty easy to read, and seem to be pretty accurate. (Posted on 11/2/10)
