Sorry to hijack this thread, but I have a question about Campden too.  In an attempt to save a little time I'd like to start heating my mash/sparge water while it's filtering into my HLT.  Can I add the Campden to the heated water and still have it work? or should I just have a second cup of coffee during the few extra minutes I'll add by waiting to heat the full amount of water?

Thanks.

I think that adding it to warm or hot water would work fine, but you'd probably want to stir it immediately so distribute it before it all volatilizes.
