I'll let you know in a few weeks. I used StarSan and it certainly fermented out no problem. You add more metabisulfite and sorbate to stabilize prior to clearing. So, I'm not sure if the amount in the StarSan makes any difference. Its use in wine making seems pretty common. My wine is clearing rather slowly. It technically should be clear by this Sunday. All the large stuff dropped out, but it's still not crystal clear. I did, however, have a heck of a time degassing it. I used a mix stir. When that didn't do it, I hand stirred it until my arm got tired and it was better, but still not 100% degassed. I ended up adding the clarifier, but it seems like there may still be a small amount of CO2 coming out. I may have to let it sit an extra week or two and, if that doesn't do it, hit it with a different fining agent.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)
