Equipment and Software / pH Meter Calibration Solutions and Storage
« on: May 11, 2014, 05:35:55 PM »
I just bought an MW101 pH meter, and I plan to get serious about my water treatments. As part of the process, I'm going to have to keep the meter calibrated, of course, and the testing/buffering and storage solutions aren't cheap. I'm thinking about using a couple of old White Labs vials to hold the testing solutions while I calibrate. Does anybody see an issue with calibrating in such a relatively small container? Also, can I cap the vials and reuse the calibrating solutions again? If so, would you recommend limiting to a specific number of "reuses"?

Kegging and Bottling / Beer in Gas Line
« on: April 22, 2012, 04:20:36 PM »
Somehow (it took some effort), I managed to get a small amount of beer into one of my gas lines - maybe a couple of drops. My options seem to be 1) RDWHAHB, 2) try to purge the line with some sanitizer, or 3) replace the line.

It seems to me that, in a chilled CO2 environment, it would be difficult for bad bugs to infest the line, so maybe option 1 is fine. But then again, a few feet of line is pretty cheap, so go with 3. No votes for 2, so far.
