Default Campden Amount

I have some Potasium Campden Tablets that read:

"Use 1 Crushed Tablet per 2G for sanitizing fruit. Use 3 Crushed Tablets per 5-6G of wine at racking."

I want to use these to sterilize water from chloromine. How many should I use. Are these normal tablets, or are they a smaller version? I also have powdered sodium metabisulfate if that would be easier.

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure if there are different sized tablets. The brand I use weighs .5 grams/tablet. I use 1/2 tablet to treat 10 gallons.

Yes, 1/4 tablet per 5 gallons. But Palmer says if you overdo it and use the whole thing, no sweat. Just an economic loss (wasted tablets!), but no damage to the beer.

I usually just strike all my water for brewing up front in my keggle like a warm water reservoir and then re heat as needed for each step. I think I'll just use a full tab in my 15g and call it good. Sound ok? Maybe I should get a chlorine test kit to be sure

Well, a tablet should work for up to 20 gallons, so yeah, that should work just fine.
