Potassium Meta pre-Fermentation

Postby timmor » Fri Oct 07, 2011 9:41 am

I just received 30 gallons of fresh juice and I mixed in 1/4 tsp of Potassium Meta per gallon to stop wild fermentation. The problem is that as the juice warmed fermentation has started. Should I be adding more SO2 or is it safe to add my yeast (Lalvin 71B1122) and hope the "good" yeast will take over?

Don't add any more so2. You should only add 1/4 tsp per 5 gallons. Add your yeast. You should be ok.

thanks

Thank You John, Actually I mistyped the amount of SO2 added, I added 1/16 tsp per gallon, a tad more than the 1/4 tsp per five gallons. I'm going to add the yeast and let the fun begin!
