Default Couple Questions

I have a couple questions about this recipe, as I am interested in making it.

Firstly, I see that a Campden tablet is listed amongst the ingredients, but unless I am missing something, I never saw mentioned exactly what point in the recipe the Campden tablet comes into play.

Secondly, is Yeast Energizer the same thing as a Yeast Nutrient, or is it different?

Thirdly, how long does this have to age after being bottled in order to be drinkable?

Thanks in Advance!

I made this and did not use the Camden in the beginning. I think it's meant for the end. Since there is no fresh fruit here the Camden won't do anything. Yeast energizer and nutrient are not the same thing. Most times I only use nutrient but I believe when I made this I used both as directed. For me it was drinkable right away when I bottled it. It did take me almost 4 months to make tho. Very tart and reminds me a cherry kijafa as the OP posted.

It was one of my first recipes so you are correct that the campden comes in at the end. Glad you liked though!
