That's for finished beer, they describe a mash pH range of 5-5.6 for the mash and the different effects it can have on the Wort pH and the finished product.

Indeed they are. Just a shame the word mash is used rather than beer or finished beer.

What's fascinating is how the brewers of old had no idea about beer chemistry as we know it today and yet they survived.
