Good enough for the price to get in the ballpark
I like how easy they are to use and you don't have to calibrate them at all. I wish it was a lot tighter on the pH reads instead of 5.0 or 5.4. There is no color in middle for exact. It is good for getting pretty close though.

Simply don't work / Never change color
I bought the same strips from my LHBS. I first used in my mash PH and since they didn't change color, and thought the mash was a very low (PH

Good enough
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.

Not Impressed
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.

You get what you pay for
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.

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.

Not precise enough
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.

Works great
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.
