    I doubt that one campden tablet in 6 gallons of must would seriously bother a healthy yeast, at least not for long.

    Remember the good old days when folks burned Sulphur to create some precise quantity of SO2. Red grape is exceptionally tolerant and will make a decent organic (no added chemicals) wine.
    All that said I would religiously sulphite every racking, OXYGEN is your enemy, ethyl alcohol reacts with it producing acetaldehyde. We as a group argue about wild yeast, , , usually they are OK.

    Since I have been testing buckets the club sells I have seen reds with a typical SO2 between 20 to 30 (the club sells Italian, California and Chile buckets) In contrast the whites will have 1 ppm to NO SO2.
