I have some Potassium Bisulfite that my mother gave me from when she made wine. So I have a basic recipe that says I need Campden tablets. Will this work as the same? Or do I have a different chemicals here? I'll attach a pic.

I think it may be a couple years old. Anyone know the shelf life for this stuff?

Do you have any open wounds? Sprinkle some on there. If it stings like crazy, it's still good.
