Sodium Metabisulphate – 100g Campden Tablet Powder- Wine making
Sodium Metabisulphate is an additive powder used in wine making to sanitise the must or juice before adding yeast and fermenting. As well as this a wine is usually treated with Metabisulphites before being bottles, this means there is virtually no chance of the wine spoiling in the bottle.
Sodium metabisulphate is the exact same product as Campden Tablets but in a powdered form. This means you don’t have to crush tablets before adding to your wine as well as being able to measure out exact amounts required for the amount of wine you are making.
1/8th of a teaspoon is the equivalent of 1 Campden Tablet which is enough to treat 1 gallon of wine must.
Sodium Metabisulpate is also used to remove chlorine from water, either prior to brewing beer or making wine. 1/8th of a teaspoon is enough to remove chlorine from around 25 litres of water.
