DIY? http://www.octiva...jects/ppm/

ebay? http://www.ebay.c...4321wt_907

I have one which looks the same as the one in the ebay link and it seems to work well.

Edit: Actually it's slightly different. Mine has a temperature function as well.

I have one I got at the hardware store that's very similar to gc's ebay version. I got it to test my RO water. I never thought about using it for coffee.

water first, then coffee is the plan. About to set up an airpot brewer in a local town and need something. Not willing to go Extract Mojo just yet.
Thanks guys.

This is a great question Sean and a lot depends on what you want to really read it for:

TDS = total dessolved solids

http://www.tdsmet...om/what-is

is a very good site for a fast learn on TDS

the ones I get and use are about 140 bucks and last as long as you take proper care of them...

if you just want to do some quick tests and know that it will not last forever you can get them on amazon for 8/16/20 bucks.

I am not saying they are all junk, just they most likely will not last too many years!

You'll spend lots of time tweaking the grind for the airpot. It's almost as sensitive as espresso because the brew time is set based on water pressure and the timer.
