Are any of you tracking final pH of your beer? If so, do you measure before or after carbonating? I've read the final pH should be in the range of 4.2 to 4.5 for most beers. Does that fit with your experience?

In dog beers, I've only had 1.

When in doubt, add more hops.

Hey Dale.  I've never really bothered to measure final pH.  You're right that the pH of finished beer will be slightly acidic.  I suspect that  carbonation does matter since dissolved CO2 introduces carbonic acid into the beer.  I'm not entirely sure if this is the primary pH reducer or if there's another reaction that contributes as well.
