Campden Tablets 50 capsules

$2.99

Campden tablets are capsules of potassium metabisulfite used to prevent oxidation and growth of wild yeast, mold, and bacteria in must or wine.

How to use with must & juice: Campden tablets can be added to fresh must or juice 24 hours prior to adding the wine yeast. Add 1 capsule per gallon, tablets must first be crushed and dissolved in a small amount of the juice or water. This mix is then stirred thoroughly into the rest of the batch. Adding wine yeast 24 hours later is vital to having a complete fermentation.

How to use with wine: Ensure fermentation is complete before adding the campden tablets to the wine. This can be done using a hydrometer and checking to see if there are any small bubbles rising in the wine. Add 1 capsule per gallon to preserve the wine color and flavor as well as prevent microbial spoilage and fight off oxygenation. Crush and dissolve in a small amount of the wine or water. This mix is then stirred thoroughly into the rest of the batch.
