    Hi! I'm in the middle of making this wine and every time I stir it, it makes me cough. Very odd, I cannot breathe it in at all. Wondering if anyone else had a similar issue, if it's a campden tablet after effect, or if I just have a brand new allergy.

    Thanks for the recipe either way! I hope I can drink it!

    post #1 uses two campden (1.0 gm) in a gallon which seems high, in fruit wines I put the primary at 0.2 gm meta powder per gallon.
    SO2 causes a chemical burn in the lungs, avoid breathing it in. The good news is racking can pull it out, and in time it is consumed in the wine, and if you lived in Australia it could be reduced (legally) with peroxide. Gravity racking sanitized carboys is why I bought a vacuum pump, nasty stuff.'
    Folks vary on their sensitivity to SO2
