My 09 Chianti is aging in a carboy. When I made it, I used too much sulfite and I thought it would dissipate a little more quickly than it has. When I checked it last week, it was at 50 ppm. So this afternoon, I decided to start splash racking it. I had moved it to one gallon jugs so it would not be too difficult. I splashed the gallon into a fermenter 5 times and it was down to 45 ppm, then 5 more splashings and it was down to 40 ppm and by then I was warn out. Ph is 3.43. I know the book says it should be down to about 20 ppm. I have 4 more gallon jugs that I know have to be done so I'm not anxious to splash them more than ten times each. Any ideas or thoughts or am I stuck with continuing the same thing? It's not that I have to do it all at one time, I can take my time with it. Two questions; will the SO2 dissipate more and is it low enough now? But if there is a better way to get it down...?
