Noooooo. Please don't. Testing ph requires strict accuracy. Ph strips can be too far apart to be worthwhile using. You can do more harm than good with those (Says John Palmer in his latest revision of "how to brew")

I have ph 5.2 stabiliser for my next brew as tge last quarters report was 6.8. Does anyone else use this? It'll be my first time
This stuff is garbage, don’t let it anywhere near your beer. There are plenty of threads about it if you search the forum.

Does anyone have a PH adjustment calculator for dummies?
Like where I can put in my PH and it tells me what to do?

I am extremely non-scientific and get a headache just looking at a lot of the shit in the calculators I've seen

I'd imagine anyone wanting to drop their sparge water pH would start by knowing what that initial pH is. So measuring water pH has it's place.

I gave it a go, does this look right?
Can't know for sure without seeing what you entered as your Existing Water Profile.

Also that looks like an older version, make sure to grab the latest which I believe is 1.18

I've got 1.18a - fresh off the site
this is the water profile, based off what info i had from the Yarra Valley report. They didn't have everything, and have only mean values (for the whole area) for some things

Absolutely. Just don't use it on its own as an indication of how to get to target mash pH.
