Homebrew Scales and Testing Supplies


Ensuring the consistency of your homebrew from one batch to the next is challenging. Accurately measuring your ingredients using a homebrewing scale and testing your water's pH helps to make sure that the beer you make is consistent, batch after batch.

Investing in the right testing and measuring tools is very important for home brewers. Without these tools, you are not only bound to create off-flavoured beer, but it is also difficult to diagnose what went wrong with your beer. There are different testing tools that you can get to help you monitor the physical and chemical attributes of your beer, and these include alcometers, hydrometers, and pH testing kits.

There are different processes when brewing beer that affect the quality of the finished product. For instance, it is important to monitor the temperature while brewing your beer to reduce dimethyl sulphide production (DMS), which provides a weird flavour. Monitoring the pH is also important because it increases the efficiency of the mash. The ideal pH of mash should be in the 5.2 to 5.5 range. Having the right pH balance improves the enzymatic activity, which leads to better conversion of starch to sugar. It also improves your yeast's health during the fermentation process and inhibits other bacterial contaminants' growth.

The amount of carbon in your homebrew also adds to the beer's defining texture, so a carbonation tester is another crucial tool that homebrewers should consider.

Please browse through our digital homebrew scales, carbonation testers, pH kits and refractometers. We make sure that we have whatever you need to monitor your homemade beer's quality and characteristics. We also have testing titrets and a vinometer for the winemakers.
