    LOL No I paid extra for those roots, think I will keep them! Since I am replacing vines there
    is already I hole I dug ~5 years ago. Sometimes I would get lucky and only run into softball
    sized basalt ...

    You would use pH meter "Storage Solution" also available at AmazonThe cheap meters use the same
    technology (glass tipped Probe) they just use a very cheap version of the probe and very cheap
    electroni...

    The reasoning is that the other parts the equation then just cancel each other out. And yes
    there is a formula in which you don't have to dilute your wine and it may use 15 ml sample size
    but it may u...

    Storing a pH probe in a storage solution is the best practice way to protect the probe and your
    investment. If you spend $15 for a pH meter you don't have much invested really. So your call
    at this po...

    No, it would require 12ml of NaOH to reach pH 8.2 for a 15ml sample.Assume I use .1 NaOH, If I
    tested a 5 ml sample and it took me 4 ml of NaOH to reach 8.2, (6g/l). Should the same wine
    with a sample...

    Oh yea, we have had a warm but luckily wet winter. We got many of the pacific fronts from CA
    this winter and almost no arctic fronts. The last two weeks we were 15-20 degrees above normal
    temp wise. I...
