I saw this quote in another thread. I just started 2 Eclipse kits (Stags Leap Merlot & Sonoma Pinot Noir). They also came with a combined Sorbate and Sulphite package. Are the manufacturers trying to make things simpler or is there some concern with all of the experienced home winemakers omitting the sorbate when making a fully dry wine? I don't see the benefit in combining the 2 ingredients as it limits your ability to exert more control over the end product. BTW . . . if anyone needs sorbate I probably have 10-15 unopened packets (ha). Anyone seeing this trend among other kit makers?
