Milwaukee Instruments pH55 Waterproof pH Tester - $64.99
Winemakers use pH as a way to measure ripeness in relation to acidity. Low pH wines will taste tart and crisp, while higher pH wines are more susceptible to bacterial growth. Most wine pH's fall around 3 or 4; about 3.0 to 3.4 is desirable for white wines, while about 3.3 to 3.6 is best for reds. Monitoring pH is a crucial element to all stages of the winemaking process and an essential tool for creating high quality wines!
