After primary fermentation, I racked 5 gallons of 3068 apfelwein onto 2 lbs of blueberries. After about 2 weeks on the blue berries I racked into a clean carboy and added campden tablets.

Question is, did the campden kill all the yeast or would I still be able to prime with corn sugar when bottling?

You will still be able to bottle carb....unless you added an excessive amount.

5 gallon batch. 5 tablets.

just as the directions say. Sounds good, a cup of dextrose ought to do it.
thanks for the help.
