so you are going to backsweeten half the batch? with what? dextrose? or something non-fermentable?

i'm only on my first wine kit and my sulfite is pre-measured and for 6 gallons, so I can't help you on that. but depending on how you are sweetening the wine, should determine how much campden/sulfiting is needed to prevent re-newed fermentation.
