pH Paper Range
« on: August 19, 2009, 12:47:55 PM »
what would the pH paper range need to be for me to check for proper acidification ? I'm looking mainly at mozzarella or feta at this time.
Also, my only acidification agents are homemade yogurt or buttermilk or a combination of both.

Any thoughts?

You want paper that will give you detailed readings for 5-6.5. Critical for mozz shaping is 5.2-5.4.
Taking an extended leave (until 2015) from the forums to build out my farm and dairy. Please e-mail or PM if you need anything.

I am going to try one of these knowing full well I need to see something better then 0.25-0.5 pH resolution but for under 20 bucks it may be helpful.

Acidic pH Levels Test Indicators, 4-7
Narrow pH range 4.0-7.0; resolution is 0.5 pH unit

pHion Diagnostic pH Test Strips
Wide range of 4.5 - 9.0
our strips are separated in small 0.25 unit increments,
