So i racked outta my secondary today. Am doing two gallons. Used an auto-siphon for the first time, great gadget but was pretty slow lol. maybe i'm impatient. Separated it into two different one gallon water jugs like milk jugs. Added a cinnamon stick to one of them. put the cinnamon in the oven on 300 for 20 minutes first. Now the hurry up and wait game...LOVE IT

So I was reading that I should put campden tablets into my wine again after taking out of my secondary. It says that my wine will sour. Should I our shouldn't I?

You will need SO2 on board while the wine is clearing/bulk aging and in preparation for bottling.
Here is my scenario, in absence of a SO2 test kit: k-meta was added preferment, and when wine was dry and racked for that first time I dosed with k-meta, or used the '1 Campden tab per gallon' tabs, then I dosed again approximately once a quarter while wine was clearing/bulk aging and attempt to coordinate a final dose of k-meta with bottling. Hope that helps.

I don't have an S02 meter, so I do something sort of similar, I guestimate the S02 by using the equivalent of 1 crushed campden tablet per gallon at every other racking and at bottling. This is a guess (but a pretty good guess usually) at keeping the wine at the recommended 50 ppm of sulfites.

The campden tablets don't give off any flavors does it

Put too much of it in and it's like sticking your nose in a sulphur factory.
