Well, getting near the point of bottling my first kit and was wondering what others thought about additional k-meta addition for continued protection in the bottle. It has been about 6 weeks since I finalized the stabilizing and clearing step (step 3), and two weeks after that I racked (step 4--so wine has been sitting undisturbed for ~1 month). After bottling, I know that I will leave some of the wine to continue to age for 6+ months, but I don't think that I can wait that long to at least try a couple of bottles (I will wait at least one month before uncorking the first one). Because I will let some age, I would think that adding some additional k-meta to the bottling bucket (1/4 tsp) would be recommended, but will this give an off flavor to any of the bottles that I open a bit early? Thanks!
