Default Campden for sanitizing

Think it was Yooper but someone gave an amount of campden tablets per cup or fraction thereof for sanitizing.

Could someone re-post the amount of campden tablets per whatever amount of water that was.

Yooper - how many campden tablets do you use and how much water for sanitizing?

Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't used the campden tablets- I've used the "powder" stuff. You use 1/4 teaspoon in 5 gallons to "equal" one campden tablet for using as an antioxidant when racking. I can't remember the dosage for sanitizing, though a quick google shows 1 TBPS to 1/2 gallon water. I'm not sure how that would translate to campden tablets, though, which have binding agents and things in them.

I also use the powder/crystals in solution for sanitizing, but I don't measure it. Basically if the solution has the power to nearly knock me down if I take a good whiff then it's good for sanitizing


*note: never take a really good whiff of it.

my local wine supply place suggests 1 tsp per liter + a pinch of citric acid to make a sanitizing solution

Could you use Star San for sanitizing instead of mixing a dose of that other stuff?

not sure if its the"right thing" however i have used star san to sanitise all vessels and bottles involved in my winemaking. 6 recipes into it and no off flavors or problems that i can detect.

my bottle of k-met says 2oz to 1g to santize. simple easy. lol unfortunately the math to convert camded tab use into the same amout is beyond me(way to overhung from last night)

you could use Star San, i don't see anything wrong with it. The goal is to have sanitized equipment, doesn't matter how you get there.

i use a bleach solution to sanitize my bottles (of course I let them dry completely before filling them).
