Product Details

Potassium Metabisulfite is a widely used winemaking agent. It effectively kills wild yeast and bacteria. The condition of your grapes and pH levels may vary the amount needed. This agent helps to clear the way for your yeast, better allowing it to do its job. Sulfites also aid in inhibiting enzymatic browning in white wines, and improves the flavor when used correctly. Metabisulfite does lose potency over time, so you should replace your supply at least annually. If you have some old metabisulfite, it can be used for sanitizing purposes. Dosage:
  • 1/4 teaspoon per 5 gallons, which yields 50 ppm.

No expiration date

Sulfites are unstable with a short shelf life. There is no expiration date on this package, so how can i know whether it is at full potency? This makes it very difficult to get accurate levels in the must. These packages need an expiration date.
