I've got 10 gallons of crushed Pinot noir grapes coming in a week. The vineyard said I should cold soak them by dropping the 5 gallon buckets in an ice pale for a few days before fermentation.

Question. Should I drop campden tablets in as soon as I start cold soak or wait until after cold soak?

I would dose the KMS at the beginning of the cold soak.

+1 for well-titled thread

That was my thought as well. Thanks!

First time making wine from premium CA grapes so I want to get this right.
