Oops, I think you caught me on something there...
Basically we just titrate with HCl to what our pH-meter calls pH 1.9. I 
just checked with one of the little pH-indicator strips and the pH is 
somewhere between 1 and 2. I'd say it doesn't matter so much. I know 
that in other protocols you elute AB with pH 3, so this should probably 
suffice in Westerns as well.
I don't have a source for this protocol though, sorry.
