Why would you skip Kmeta when you rack? The chance of introducing oxygen and other nasties is much higher when you rack. Added oxygen can lead to oxidized wine and the extra oxygen gives all the nasties a nice meal to help them grow and multiply.I separated racking from kmeta schedule for my wines because I realized that they probably don't benefit from being done at the same time. So, I add kmeta every three months and rack three to four times over the course of the wine's process.
