Hanna Instruments HI 99161 Ph meter
« on: October 24, 2016, 10:56:29 PM »
I have always checked acidity with titration tests and now that I am dealing with such small volumes of cheese it is difficult to get 10 ml of whey from the curds for testing, especially while stabbing the cheese.

I need to start using a good ph meter and have been looking at the HI 99161. Does anyone have any experience or advice on one of these?

A few weeks after I got mine they came out with the Bluetooth version for half the price

That looks nice, easier to clean than mine, but way dearer.

I think what could end up really useful for making cheese is the data logger . As it gives a curve graph of your acid  drop and this could be used to notice how what you change in the make effects the outcome.

Oh what a difference 1 week can make.
