Spring, I have it on pretty good authority, that your a good wine maker with excellent knowledge on the subject. I got side tracked yesterday, trapping my nemesis (nemesi?) and I pitched my yeast in a BUCKET of white grape/hibiscus/passionflower primary, forgeting that the whipe grape juice had (sp) metabisulfate in it. I didn't really pay attention to the fact that my starter wasn't really 'starting' and tossed it in. Now that it has sat a day, it isn't doing I have to re-pitch the yeast because I didn't let it sit for 24 hours, beforehand? Thanks, Annie

Let it go, just wait. When I pitched my cider I thought I blew it because I pitched it twelve hours if that after campden. It didnt start for 36 hours, wait it out.
