It’s important to test the pH of your kombucha both at the start and end of the 1st ferment
For a safe brew that free from harmful microbes, ensure that the starting pH of your kombucha first fermentation is 4.5 or below
Note: If you need to lower the pH, mix in small amounts of plain white vinegar. Retest until you reach a pH of 4.5 or below
The target pH for kombucha that’s ready to drink or bottle is 2.5-3.5
Kombucha Chemistry strips are ready to use straight out of the box
✅ No fiddly scraps of test paper to cut to length or tear-off
✅ No finger or bench staining to worry about
✅ No messing around with calibration and buffer solution
✅ Just test your booch and drop the used strip in the trash
Each strip measures
- 3.13” total pH strip length
- 2.63” white cardboard
- 0.5” test area
If you brew once a week and test before and after your 1st ferment. This pH testing kit will last you a whole year (allowing for a 2 week brewing holiday)
Includes an easy reference color chart for 0-6 (0.5 intervals) and pH matches
Test strips with 1.0 intervals (i.e. 1,2.3..) are not precise enough to safely test kombucha. This is because of the importance of your brew’s first ferment starting pH at or below 4.5 and 3.5 on finishing, 1.0 increment strips will not provide this accuracy.
Always use test strips with 0.5 intervals to safely test your home brewed kombucha

I plan to make some kefir waters and anticipate using the strips to understand that process better as well. Then on to kombucha.
These strips are easy and reliable. Look forward to lots of fun and anticipate buying them again.
1. The way it’s packaged with a hard plastic case
2. Simple instructions - Easy to use
3. No problem matching test strip to color chart (I was concerned about this prior to purchasing and using)
4. My new 3 gallon batch of kombucha tested at 4.0 ph. Out of curiosity, I tested some vinegar I have on hand and it gave an accurate/anticipated reading of 2.5 ph.
5. I consider the price as reasonable for 100 test strips. This will last me for a long time.
What I don’t like -
1. No complaints at this point
The strips are stored in a hard rectangular plastic case with sliding lid that has the visual measurement scale on the back. The case is ok but not great since the strips stick out at the top and will often hinder the lid from closing if you slide the lid on slightly off center and one is sticking out to the side.
The strips scale uses 2 colors to indicate the pH level. The bottom color seems to be the same from 0-3 and the top color varies across the whole 0-6 scale. Because of this I feel like it is difficult to distinguish between the sweet spot range of 2.0 - 3.0 since you are only going by the single top color and that color is a variation of brown. Maybe it is my eyes, but my brain keeps thinking it is one then the other and back again.
Since I am newer to Kombucha, I don't know how big of a deal having 2 vs 3 pH levels are yet to a batch, but I like to be consistent and I wish these had a slightly better differentiation between those levels. In the end though, these will easily tell you if you are 3 or below, which I hear is important.
