Overnight should be fine! You'll be adding the campden, too, so it'll be fine.

Good queestion. At first, I think it kills the stuff you don't want fermenting your wine. What does it do when racking?

It is an antioxidant. The sulfite binds with the wine, so that oxygen can't. Then it gradually disipates.

I guestimate 50 ppm by using one campden tablet per gallon at every other racking.

Yes, multiply everything by 4 except the yeast.

So this is the second racking since primary. I racked this onto crushed campden tabs. It has to be the campden that is responisble for the color change right? Yooper said it would end up a golden color but I did not expect it to change right before my eyes.

Finally got mine all finished and yeast pitched. Mine was never pink. It's been a light green thus while time. My stalks were all green a well though. In the gravity sample it was mor yellowish.

Whoops, I added the yeast after everything else instead of waiting 12 hours. What's the reasoning to wait? I've got a spare pack of the same yeast if the other chemicals are going to kill this first batch.

The yeast should be added after 24 hours- just so the campden doesn't stun it. It might be fine. The pectic enzyme works better 12 hours after the campden is added- they don't play well together, but no harm will come from adding them at the same time. The PE just might be a bit more ineffective. I wouldn't worry about it, though- this wine clears beautifully anyway.
