Does this unit come with buffering solution so it can be calibrated?
Michael C Bereny on Nov 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I don’t think mine did, but you can buy them separately. I like the powder packets which you can use to make your own solution with distilled water. This unit seems to need recalibrating often.
How is the calibration process? One or two points?
Valued C on Feb 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It reads out to the nearest tenth. The calibration is simple. Put it into ph buffer solution and turn a screw until it reads correctly.

Milwaukee vs. Beverage Doctor (KegLand)
Years ago, I bought a Milwaukee pH meter at the MoreBeer. I recently saw the Beverage Doctor pH meter so I ordered one thinking it would be easier to calibrate than my old meter.

I followed the directions and mixed up the buffer solution for calibrating the Beverage Doctor meter and ordered new 7 pH solution for the test.

I calibrated the Milwaukee meter using the 7 pH solution and calibrated the Beverage Doctor meter using their 4.0 pH solution following the instructions included with the instruments.

After calibrating the Beverage Doctor meter, I noticed it drifted even when sitting in the calibration solution. I then tested it in the 7 pH solution and it read low (6.8). I then rinsed it with RO water and tested it in the 4.0 solution again. It read 3.9. I did this several times between the two solutions and it continued to read off by 0.1 or 0.2. I tried calibrating the Beverage Doctor in the 7.0 pH solution but had the same results. The meter was still off slightly.

I tested the Milwaukee meter in the 4.0 Beverage Doctor calibration solution and it was spot on 4.0. I then rinsed it with RO water and tested it in the 7 pH solution. Again, it was spot on. I did this between the two solutions several times and it continued to read reliably.

I've always stored my Milwaukee meter dry while the Beverage Doctor meter is stored wet.

My preference is Milwaukee meter even though calibration is not as slick. I don't have to store it wet and it was more repeatable.

PH meter
Overall I'm pretty satisfied with this meter. The switch is a little tight to turn on and it needs to be calibrated often. Make sure you get the PH calibration solution with this but its pretty easy to do and doesn't take long.

Love it!
Perfect, just what I needed to manage pH levels for brewing beer. Calibration could be easier, other than that it worked great.
