    Ascorbic acid removal from finished wine

    Do I have a Hydrogen Sulphite problem?

    Hi Guys, I am new to winemaking and I really hope you can help me. I started on a ''Wine Expert Zinfandel Eclipse'' 10 days ago and after I racked the wine from my primary fermenter (closed bucket with airlock) to my secondary fermenter (PET carboy with airlock 6 gallons) everything seemed...
