Well I’ve often wondered if, after having sanitized my bottles with KMS and hung on my bottle tree, whether the residual KMS solution (present only in drops by the time I bottle) can/will raise my SO2 ppm levels by any appreciable amount.
For example, I have tested and adjusted my Free SO2 levels of my wine several days ago and just finished sanitizing my bottles. Should these be allowed to “completely” dry before I bottle? Thoughts?

The math:
a bottle is 750 ml
a drop as in titration is about 0.025 to 0.05 ml
your dilution is one in 30K, ,,, or maybe 1,000 if a lot of it
