how to use PH test strips?
    #4368560 - 07/04/05 04:44 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

i'm going to make some casing PH acidity tests using different buffering materials. i will use ph test strips since it is the cheapest way. as you all know those strips are made for liquids and casing material is solid, so i was adviced 2 very different procedures to do it, which is the best for your experience?

1) simply put the strip in the wet casing
2) mix 1 part dry material to 2.5 parts distilled water, shake for many minutes, filter and put strips in filtered water

I would think option 1. Your casing should be near saturation so should be moist enough for the paper.
With option 2 you are diluting your casing too much so the reading is not what it the real moist casing will be. i.e. diluted orange juice will have a higher ph than undiluted juice. You will end up with a false reading closer to 7 if you dilute your casing (either acidic or basic)
