I want to make better beer. My beers have done well in competitions, but I will continue to strive for better results. Water chemistry and water profiles should help step up my game. Looking forward to diving deep and coming up with gold.

I was looking for a PH meter anyway and was going to send my water to Ward labs for testing. I decided to do my own testing and this fit the bill.

Are probes on the pH meter replaceable?
Tracy Crenshaw on Jun 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the meter comes with a replaceable tip, and requires replacement at regular intervals or after long term storage.
Does this kit come with ph meter storage solution?
Chris Herb on Nov 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, it does not come with the storage solution. I use the 4 ph solution to store it though (recommended).
What temperature is the pH probe good to? A lot of pH meters are good to 125F, some are good up to 212F.
Brad Probert on Aug 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The operating temperature of the ph meter recommended by the manufacturer is 32 to 122 ° F (0 to 50 ° C), the important thing is always gauge at the sample temperature. According to manufacturer the temperature range of the meter is from 23 to 194 ° F (-5 to 90 ° C)

Don't know how I lived without it
I know, it's a bit pricey. But demystifying your water will make your beer go from good to great. This is a very useful kit. Very worth the cost.

I was skeptical, but it made me a believer.
I was skeptical that all this "chemistry lab stuff" would be a real hassle, but it wasn't. Process was simple, didn't require any lab skills per se, and gave me confidence in the results. I was thinking it would be something crude like comparing a color tone like pH strips. But it's very specific and obvious color changes you see. You count the number of drops and then multiply by a scaling factor and you have your mineral content. It's great knowing it's designed specifically for brewing.

Water chemistry made easy
I've been curious about what my city water comes out to and is it good for my beer. The LaMotte test kit proved to me that my city water is good to use. Of course I'm still learning on what adjustments I need to make based on the style of beers I'm making, but that'll come in time once I get to reading John Palmers book on Water. But the LaMotte kit has great instructions on how to test for the different elements in your sample water. They also provide methods to convert some of the measurements to apply towards online brewing calculators. This is very helpful. I feel a lot better knowing more about my brewing water.

Great product - Fast shipping
The LaMotte BrewLab Plus water test kit was the missing element in my brewing arsenal. I had been relying on my municipal water report however I found that my water changed throughout the year especially during the summer months when municipal water treatments changed to address summer algae. The test kit takes the guesswork out of the equation and give you fast reliable results to base your water adjustments on. The instructions for each test are easy to follow. I would highly recommend the kit to a friend or any fellow home-brewer who is interested in tinkering with water chemistry.

I’m a water chemist now
The kit and the test procedure booklet makes performing the water tests and getting accurate results easy. There’s a lot of reagents which allow several tests to be done.
