Final beer PH?

(1/2) > >>

I have been measuring my PH at several points in my brewing process and wonder if anyone has a preference on their final beer PH of APAs and IPAs. My most recent one is 4.82 and finished at 1.010.

4.8. is on the high side. Most beers are said to be in the 4 to 4.6 range. An IPA or APA would do well lower in the range.

quattlebaum:
Good to know. I have been using PH strips and have recently received a my PH meter ( Milwaukee 101) and it has made a big difference. I was on the high side with the strips and this last IPA.

hopfenundmalz:
A glass of beer, some phosphoric acid, and your pH meter would let you taste what your beer is like at a lower pH. ThenA-B with the unadjusted beer.

Hmmm... May be I should get a pH meter.
