My recipe doesn't call for Camden tablets, should I be using them every time?

I dont think it ever hurts to use them since they do kill any bacteria. I didnt use them this time since I had just steamed the juice and I knew it was pasteurized well. I would use the camden tablets if I had the juice sitting in the fridge for a few days before I started the must.

Sg hit .990 so racked on campden/sorbate & added clearing agent. Is it better to do that & let age, or do you wait to add clearing agent right before you bottle?

the clearing agent helps right away after fermentation stops so you did it correctly, its looking good
