I have just siphoned my cider to a pressure barrel for the second fermentation and was wondering if I should have added some campden tablets?

All my kit was sterilised and the cider tasted ok, if a little yeasty

Cheers

Russ

The only time you want to add them is when you want to kill off the critters. If you kill them now, it won't ferment anymore.
