    Testing TA How Red???


    When doing the drop test for TA am I done at the first turn of color (usually pink) or do I keep going for a more reddish color???

    I get sort of a magenta color - not really a true red. just make sure it stays pink and doesn't turn sort of grey again.

    You add drops until the color starts changing, then continue adding drops as long as the color continues changing with each drop. When you add a drop and the color doesn't change you are done and you do not count the final drop (which didn't change the color).

    The particular shade of red doesn't matter.
