Preparing to bottle my wine
« on: April 27, 2017, 10:52:46 PM »
I'm about to add potassium sorbate, should I rack onto that in another vessel, or just drop the sorbate in current fermentor? How long should I let it sit after sorbate before bottling? First timer with wine so any help is appreciated

I would just drop it in the current fermenter and gently stir. Wait at least 24 hours before bottling. I usually wait longer than that for things to settle out a bit.
