How do you do a slurry ? Question on process


#1

When doing a slurry test by a 1 to 1 ratio and you have distilled water, do you ph your water or use stright distilled at a 7…?


#2

One of the best ways to test is a slurry test. 2 oz of ph 6.5 water and a tablespoon of soil, let sit 10 minutes then check ph Im assuming you have ph meter not drops there hard to read using slurry test.


#3

Distilled water can still have a varied pH. I have seen some go as high as 8. pH it to 6.5 and then do the slurry test. Post the results here and we can help you understand the results @Ky2high

Ok sounds good. I use happy frog and it has been Rock solid for me. Always good to test. Before you do put on rubber gloves and give it a good mix to make sure the soil is mixed good. I have seen “clumps” that needed to be separated but only one or two here and there. Giving it a good mix is a good practice no matter what soil you use though. @Ky2high
