If i am correct, you mix your recipe as you wish....then adjust (lower) the ph prior to bottling with an acid.
Vinegars, lime juice. Without a ph meter or similar test strip I wouldn't be able to tell.
The cooked sauce I made yesterday after the addition of vinegar came in at 4.7. I added 1 TBLS of lime juice and it went down to 3.6, safe to bottle.
I am learning myself...really can't say enough how handy the ph meter has become.

mine is a Milwauke brand and yellow in color.
If you don't need long term storage and just keep it in the fridge 2 -3 weeks, make your sauce and enjoy it as is.
The need for low ph is for long term storage..there are a couple new posts on the front page of sauce making that did just that...made a quick sauce to be stored in the fridge and used soon.

Thanks. I dont have a ph meter so was hoping if some had a tried and true recipe they knew - as is - was low, then that could work. Which ph meter do you have?
Take a look for "ph meter" on ebay and you will find plenty of affordable meters.

Basic PH meters are pretty cheap and will get you into the ball park, like 10-15 bucks will put you into the game. Ya you can spend hundreds on a meter if you wish, but its not necessary. The trick to any meter is calibration and maintenance.
