Good Instructions
Found the instructions easy to follow. When making darker wines it was hard to read the color changes but works great on lighter wines and meads.

Easy to use and accurate enough for the home winemaker
A couple of hints:
The NaOH must be used rather quickly, as the concentration will change as water is evaporated or absorbed from the air. This can affect the reading by +/- 0.5 g/L in extreme cases. Just make sure when using it that the bottle is opened for as short a time as possible, and is closed tightly after use and all should be fine.
One more hint is to add a drop of wine and a drop of NaOH to the dilution water at the same time as you add the phenolphthalein indicator. Make sure that the starting color is pink. Then add your wine sample and titrate just like the instructions say. The drop of wine buffers the water and the NaOH adjusts the pH to the indicator endpoint. This ensures that you are titrating back to the endpoint correctly, and will give better accuracy.
