Just throw tap water (if it tastes good) into a bucket/carboy with a crushed tablet and in 24hrs your water will be ready to use. Save money on buying water. remember to crush the tablet before adding it as it is hard to dissolve.October 31, 2012Works well.Used to kill the residual yeast in my hard apple cider and seems to work well.February 2, 2016Gotta have it!If you make wine you gotta have Campden tablets. 1-5 gallon batches are simple, 1 crushed tab per gallon to kill off bacteria, then the same before bottling to help stabilize. Pot Meta in powder form is fine too, but I feel more for the large wineries who need tons at a time.November 29, 2012Removes ChloramineMany municipalities use Chloramine to treat their water, and it doesn't evaporate when left exposed to air. Use these Campden tables to remove it.December 14, 2012a must haveall you need is 1 tablet per gallon of wine crushed and dissolved into your wine. as well as kmeta to preserve and prevent bottle bombs in your wine.January 21, 2013Needed for wine makingI use it to kill off or at least hold down the growth of wild yeast and bacteria in my must. I crush 1 tablet per gallon. It also removes chlorine, so your wine will taste better.January 22, 2013You need thisI crush 1 tablet per gallon of wine to preserve and prevent further fermentation. It also removes Chloramine if you use it for Brewing water, saving you money. So it has multiple uses.February 11, 2013Use with sparkling cider and skeeter peeI usually add these when I force carbonate my skeeter pee and cider. I add a couple crushed tablets, stir it lightly. Transfer to a keg, carbonate for a couple weeks and fill my bottles using a bottle filler and very low pressure from the keg (2-3 lbs)_x000D_Works well and I can take the carbonated beverages wherever I want.March 7, 2013Wish I knew about these soonerI had heard of campden tablets,but thought they were only for wine making. I wish I had found these sooner. I had been using a carbon filter in my refrigerator to remove chlorine from my brewing water. _x000D_I didn't realize that carbon filtering wasn't very effective on chloramine. _x000D_I use half a tab crushed in 5 gallons of tap water at the beginning of my brewing preparations. Less than 3 cents to remove the chloramine from my water. It transformed my homebrew.March 16, 2013Great multipurpose tabI bought a pound when I realized these tabs were not a one trick pony. I use them for the standard purposes of killing wild yeast from my wine (1 tablet crushed per gallon) and preserving my wine (1 tablet crushed before bottling wine). Also for removing chloramine from my brewing water. (1/2 tablet crushed per about 5 gallons of water and wait 24 hours). These are also great because there is no measuring like is required the powder.April 7, 2013

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 1 answerIf you add you yeast to the must an hour after you add the Camden tablet, will it also kill off the wine yeast also?BEST ANSWER: Yes, or at least it creates an inhospitable environment and it won't reproduce. You need to wait longer, like 24-48 hours for the sulfites to evaporate out and disperse from the wine must before you can safely add the yeast into it. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
