Those test strips aren't really worth a plugged nickel. They are potentially accurate to 0.5 ph and I say potentially due to the error in reading the color change in a red wine. Spend $20-30 and get a cheap ph meter.You could also get simple pH test strips, fairly cheap (under ten bucks) for 100-pack. I use these only out of curiosity (to learn as I begin tampering with my processes). As I only make wines from kits at this point I do not feel the need to do anything more involved or pricier.
