Can sulfite be added directly on grape skins after crush or should it be hydrated in water first and then added? My local shop also recommends covering the fermentation tank with a lid during the 24hrs before adding yeast.

Thoughts?

Cheers

Any treatments should be dissolved before adding. As in cooking, it allows more thorough/even distribution. Yes to covering the fermenter. Keeps debris/critters out. Not necessarily lock-down sealed tho. many use cheesecloth
