I'm starting my third kit today with an LE sauv Blanc Rosè. I have been all seasonal juice pails till now.
My question is since these are manufactured and packaged commercially, im assuming there really is no need to worry about checking TA and ph during the primary correct?
If I were adding different things in the primary I could see the need. Or should I be on top of this regardless, just to have a reference?

No real need. That's one of the nice things about Kits. Lot of guesswork has been taken out. I find I personally like my whites to have a bit more zing so I always test pH when the wine is finished and completely degassed and clear. I add a bit more tartaric acid if the pH is above 3.3. I like it down around 3.2. YMMV.
