No bottle bombs here
My wife likes sweet wines, so I use this Potassium Sorbate to stop further fermentation so we don't get bottle bombs. No bombs in the 6 years I've been using it.

Fro sweet wine, without broken glass
Occassionally I want a sweeter wine and I don't want to add sugar so I use Potassium sorbate. Potassium sorbate does not destroy wine yeast. You need to use a Campden tablet to stop the yeast and prevent bottle bombs.

Use in my back sweetened cider
After my cider is done fermenting I like to back sweeten with juice concentrate before kegging. K Sorbate along with keeping it cold helps to stop the yeast from picking back up. Stuff works great.

should be on your shelf
Depending on what type of wine you make, you should have this available. If you want a sweeter wine, you will need it. You won't be able to get sweet wine without it. I use it when I need to sweeten wine.

Lets me make sweeter wine
I'm not fond of bone dry wine, I want them a little sweeter. But I don't want exploding bottles either. This is a good additive because I get both. Sweeter wine and no bottle bombs.

Great!
Needed to keep my wine sweet, this helped the Camden tablets. Great product, and CHEAP!

Good for back sweetening
I add potassium sorbate before I back sweeten my meads and wine. This is the only way to add fermentables without them being consumed ending in bottle bombs.

Good for back sweetening wine
I like my Riesling a little sweet so I add potassium sorbate before I add additional sugar to ensure the remaining yeast don't eat the sugar. Works great,

a must have if you like a sweeter wine
We have used this potassium sorbate every year we have made our own wine. We tend to like a sweeter wine and add sugar to the finished product. You must add this or you risk the chance of exploding bottles. Well worth the few cents to add to your wine before bottling.You can also purchase the conditioner if you want to sweeten both sweetener and sorbate are together.

works like a charm!
Use in conjunction with Potassium Metabisulfite (Campden tablets). With that combination, fermenting will stop cold. Worked like a charm!_x000D__x000D_Note: do NOT use if you are putting your wine/cider through malolactic fermentation, or your drink will come out smelling like bad cheese
