Default Warning!!! Could have gone wrong.

Before I made my brew today, I sterilized all my equipment.
Then for some stupid reason and no thought, I sterilized or so tried to sterilize my mash tun with a very strong dosage of Sodium Metabisulphite , Not a very smart move on my behalf, as it created unseeable gases which I couldnt smell
But could feel the effects.

It made me feel dizzy,short of breath and gave me a metallic taste in my mouth,
So I quickly opened all windows and doors and also dumped the solution.

Has anyone had this happen to them or know what the gas is?

It sounds like an allergic reaction.

Doesnt sound like something I would use. More for industry I would think with lots of ventilation.

1) anything during or before the boil doesn't need to be sanitized (mash tun, HLT, kettle, etc.)

2) For everything else, I'd recommend Star San
