25 pH strips per vial

More information: pH testing is not a requirement for Kombucha brewing. In fact, most home brewers do not test the pH level of their batches. However, we do recommend pH testing if a person wishes to deviate from a standard recipe (e.g., use less sugar, use a tea other than black or green tea, etc.) or has a batch that appears to be culturing abnormally. Ultimately we recommend using good judgment and adhering to a standard recipe when brewing Kombucha Tea. If in doubt, test the pH level and never consume Kombucha Tea that looks, smells, or tastes unpleasant.

    • How do you exactly use the test strip to measure the ph of Kombucha tea?
    • Simply dip the end of the strip that has the tiny paper pad into a sample of your kombucha for 1-2 seconds. In 10-15 seconds the strip will change color. Hold the small square up to the enclosed color chart to determine the pH. Kombucha is ready when it registers at 4.0 or lower.

Great tool to have for beginners Review by RAY

I just started making Kombucha, and these have been very useful in monitoring the process and learning how the taste corresponds to pH. These strips read a pH range of 2.8 to 4.4; however, it would be nice to have strips that read as low as 2.6, though these certainly help. (Posted on April 16, 2014)

I am using to test the acidity of my Kombucha tea. It helps to know if the KT is ready or not. I wish there was a clearer difference between the colors. would be easier to determine the acidity of the tea. But I do like it very much. (Posted on December 4, 2013)
