Default False Start

I just started my first batch of cider, I gallon. I added 1 campden tablet per gallon so, in this case just one tablet--it has been in pimary for maybe 3 hours without yeast added yet and I think it is starting to bubble--should I add more campden to supress wild yeast? will 2 talets for 1 gallon really give too much sulphur

thanks

I asked to see if you were using a commercial apple juice which are usually pasteurised or fresh fruit (the actual variety doesn't matter - no worries ). Fresh fruit harbour wild yeasts on the skins so you did the right thing by adding campden.
If it's still bubbling with no yeast added by you then add more campden - One dissolved tablet in a gallon should have been enough to kill wild yeasts but another tablet won't hurt - the sulphites will disperse!. If you do use another just give it 24hrs before you pitch your own yeast.
