Yeah, didn't think this through fully a year ago. But, it was only my second attempt. If I could do it over I'd probably start with about 3 or 4 lbs more, honey, use 71B, and aim for a final...

I just broke down and bought the granules. Splitting tablets in half or in thirds seems impractical. My package doesn't say. It says "use 1/3 a tablet when the recipe calls for 1." It's obviously...

Yeah, I meant 1.5 tsp per 5 gallons of sorbate. Backsweetening without pasteurizing is new to me. I thought I read not to exceed 1.5 tsp per 5 gallons. Looks like you're at 2.5 per 5 gallons? I'd...

For a 5 gallon batch it seems fairly common to add 1 campden tab per gallon and 1.5 tsp potassium sorbate per gallon. The problem I've got is that may campden tablets are apparently much stronger...
