K-metabisulfite and color
I just added 1/4 teaspoon of potassium metabisulfite to 14 lbs strawberries in 2.5 gallons which I intend to make up to 5 gallons of water. However, after adding this along with pectic enzyme and grape tannin the whole mess went from a nice strawberry red to a hideous brown color.
Is this temporary, should I RDWHAHB or did I just screw up this batch of strawberry wine?
I wouldn't have expected metabisulfite to change the color to brown being an antioxidant...
