campden tablets

(1/2) > >>

Podo:
Hi everyone, new to the forum.  So, is there any magic to using campden tablets?  I crushed one, tossed it in my water, and the remains didn't appear to have dissolved at all.  Do they need to be crushed to dust or given a lot of time to dissolve?

ndcube:
I have a stainless steel tablespoon that I crush them in.  I use the back of the teaspoon.  I then stir in the powder.  It's all dissolved within a minute I would say.

theDarkSide:
I usually prepare my water the night before and toss it in then ( 1/2 tablet for my 5 gallon batch ).  Usuallly it's gone by morning.

nyakavt:
They dissolve faster in hot water, so you could toss them in with the strike water as it's heating up.
