PH Meters...any suggestions? was created by Hillbilly John
I have a ph meter for liquids but not for meat. Does anyone have a suggestion for a meat probing ph meter. I see one on Amazon for $190 (AMTAST).

I'm surprised there were no responses to this. Both the forum moderator and direct emails from Umai have clearly intimated that there is no reliable way to measure PH. Is what I learned in high-school science lab all fake-news?

Would be curious to hear an expanded discussion on PH measurement.

I originally got into this to use traditional (non umai bag) methods via a home built dry-cure chamber with humidity & temperature control(and I still intend to). PH measurement would probably be part of that (AW if I could afford a testing device).

Anyway...mostly just curious about the "can't reliably test ph" comments.

My 70mm Pepperoni is down to close to 65% original weight....one is a little ahead of the others and I may slice into next weekend.

It is best (easier) to have a meter with a meat/cheese probe. You can use your liquid meter if you make a slurry. Hanna. Apera, Milwaukee are all reliable.
There is an ongoing discussion on another forum here: www.wedlinydomowe.pl/en/viewtopic.php?t=...ostorder=asc&start=0

I have a Milwaukee

A PAW kit for measuring Aw is big bucks and is really not necessary for the home sausage maker

Yes, I assumed i'd need a spear type. I have a liquid type that we use for Kambucha.

Here is one I'd like but it's pretty expensive...It's not too bad until you add the spear option:

Apera Instruments PH60

Agree on the AW - Priced like unobtainium. Also agree that it's unnecessary but I'm a gadget freak and can dream of finding one in a box at a flea market.

Thanks for the feedback.
Cheers.
