  • Potassium Metabisulfite is to be used in wine making to inhibit bacteria growth, too high a dose will leave an unpleasant taste. 
  • Add 1/4 tsp. per 5 gallons before fermentationfor 50 ppm (wait 24 hours to add yeast) and another 1/4 tsp. per 5 gallons before bottling wine (wait minimum 3-4 days to bottle).
  • An equipment sanitizing solution can be made by adding 1 Tbsp to 1/2 gallon of water (requires rinsing after). 
  • Potassium Metabisulfite is preferred to Sodium Metabilsulfite as it does not add sodium.
