Hey all,

I just realized that I thought I ordered K-meta, but it turns out I have Sodium metabisulfate. I have used 1/4 tsp in 2 batches for bulk aging. Do you think it will ruin my batches? Is there a big difference?

Thanks for any input

Wade

you will be fine - most winemakers don't like to use sodium as it is Salt in essence.

I use sodium meta for all my sanitizing needs

I would re-label it (For Sanitizing Only) and use K-Meta at next racking.
