pH buffer solutions to calibrate your pH meter.

A relatively low cost but accurate and robust pH meter can be bought from RS Components (see below).
pH meters usually calibrate at standard values such as 4.0 (acid), 7.0 (neutral) or 10.0 (alkaline). Most pH meters need you to calibrate at two points before starting a brew session. For brewing the 4.0 and 7.0 are most useful.

They can deliver if you order enough (>R300 ?), otherwise go fetch !
