    I typically degas then add my clarifying agents, campden, and sulfite. Today, I had a total brain fart and added everything then degassed. Did I just make a whoopsie?

    I think degassing is easier if you add something crystalline right before, but you have to be cautious, the main issue is that it may be rather violent and cause an eruption. Sounds like in your case that didn't happen, so you're in good shape.

    "Paranoia will destroy 'ya!" Sorry I couldn't help that, I just finished a glass of wine, and couldn't resist that Kinky outburst. Showing my age, I'm not as young as my picture implies!

    There are a few of us older guys here. Saw them in 1981 with a very young Bryan Adams.
