I'm making my first batch of wine using cooking pears from a neighbor's tree that he never uses for anything. This is why you need to know exactly how much sugar to add since you will have bottles exploding if you exceed the atmospheric pressure inside the bottles. Yeah - SG readings help out a lot.

Campden tablet to inhibit wild yeast? It prevents yeast from budding breeding. Includes coupon layering, Craigslist finds, eBay finds, Amazon specials, etc. Nov 13, 2014 10. You do not need any camden tablets or any sulfite at this time.
Exercise extreme caution when handling the bottles. A pinch could be 1 tablet. Nov 6, 2006 Messages: Oct 29, 2010 Messages: Forgot your password?
Hate ads? My concern is two fold here- I don't want to add too little campden to where the wine will go bad or even oxidize, yet I don't want too much where we are getting headaches from drinking it. So far we are on our second racking an it's clearing nicely. I would bring it up at next racking.
Posted Mar 21, 2012. Kinda like a condom around the yeasts. Then we've added 1 campden tablet 8 days later when it was racked into the secondary, and since then we've racked the wine two more times, adding 1 campden tablet each racking for a total of 6 tablets from the very beggining.
