dmcl....I wanted to chime in and say that I have yet to use a fining agent in any batch I have made and it is always clear in less than 60 days, regardless if I had added pulp or fresh fruit into the recipe.
Finings have no relation to sorbate/k-meta, so you have no worries about one being dependent on the other. You will not want this dry, at least I do not know anyone who likes this dry... so you will have to ferment as low as it will go, allow to clear, rack off sediment, backsweeten with an unfermentable like stevia or sucralose and stabilize with k-meta, prime with a fermentable and bottle appropriately.
