I know the feeling. You just started a new hobby and believe you know enough to do this and "how come it's not bubbling?" Son Of A ^[email protected](*!

Of course it's on a day that the wine shop is closed. No one you know can answer your questions so what do you do??????????????????

How much k-meta dod you add at first and how long did you wait before adding the yeast and did you hydrate the yeast? Im very glad its going now but have only ever had 1 batch of wine that didnt start from something I did t do. I did screw up 2 batches myself though when switching from campden tablets to powder and sulfited the ever living crap out of 2 batches, maybe now knowing what I know now I could have saved them possibly but I added about 10 x the amount of sulfite that should have been added! But other then those 2 it was a kit that contained a bad batch of Lavin EC 1118 and everyone was having this same problem.

Hopefully you picked up a few extra packets of yeast to keep in the fridge.
