A brief review of Omega’s 7011-PHH pH meter has been sitting in my drafts folder for months now. I’ve been seriously impressed with this product, and do not hesitate in recommending it to anyone looking for a pH meter for brewing. Prior to owning the 7011-PHH I relied purely on Bru’n water to estimate my mash acid additions, I was finally convinced to invest in a pH meter after a long brew day had resulted in an astringent beer.
Here’s a quick list of the reasons I love this product:
- Fully waterproof design
- Comes with case, batteries, and buffer solutions for calibration
- Calibration procedure is easy and fast
- Instructions simple and clear
- Better accuracy than others in it’s price range, such as products from Hanna or Milwaukee
- Replaceable electrode
- Wide automatic temperature correction (0-80 degrees Celsius)
- Readily available in Canada (direct from Omega)
Not too much more to say about this thing. It’s a pH meter, works great, and after several brew days I have a hard time imagining any other pH meter providing better value.
Currently on Omega.ca this pH meter is 105 CAD while 99 USD on Omega.com, so if you’re looking for a pH meter in Canada, it’d best to get one before Omega adjusted it prices for our weak dollar.
