Pretty much the topic. I have a mead that I am about to rack to secondary. In secondary, I am going to add blueberries, vanilla beans, and more honey. I don't want the yeast to ferment any of the sugar I am adding.
So my question is should I add the p. sorbate and camden tablets into the primary and give it a few days to halt fermentation and then rack? Or just rack on top of the sorbate and camden tablets?
Also, Should I mix this stuff with water first or just add the powder into the carboy?
