Default Pectic enzyme question

Started a batch of fruit wine today and I added the pectic enzyme at the same time as the campden tablets, the recipe from jack keller says to add campden then wait 12 hrs to add pectic enzyme. Will this lessen the effect of the additives or produce off flavors or is it just his way of doing things.

Sulfites inhibit pectic enzyme somewhat. You may not have any issues, though, and the wine may clear just fine and you can get just as much juice out of the fruit anyway.

If you are adding the cambden tablets to the juice you will be able to add pectinase after a good mix. It takes high concentrations of sulphite to denature the enzymes protein structure and render it useless.
