or is that what campben tablets are?
Campden tablets are indeed sulphites in tablet form, being either potassium metabisulphite or sodium metabisulphite.
So that the tablet should give between 40 and 50 ppm per gallon per tablet.
You should likely have added some when racking the finished (finished fermenting that is) batch. Then it's recommended to add further sulphites on every second racking to keep the levels of free SO2 up to a level where it inhibits any fungal growth......
Or that's the idea anyway.....
