Welcome to the Chemicals and Sanitizers Section
Sulfites or Sulphites occur naturally in wines but you can add small amounts to wine 'must' to inhibit native bacteria and yeasts to preserve the freshness of your wine. It is possible to make organic wine without added sulfites but this generally means you don't use sulfites in the fermentation process and the grapes were grown organically, not that there are no sulfites present, since this is impossible. This is only for a very limited number of wines and can be difficult for the home vintner to achieve.

The products on this page are for WINE ONLY. Please don't try these in beer wort.

*People allergic to sulfites, or asthmatics, should avoid sulfite-based products. These products are not certified kosher.

Campden tablets: 2 oz.
Inhibits harmful bacteria and yeast. Use only in wine.
*Contains sulfites. People allergic to sulfites or asthmatics should avoid sulfite-based products.

Copper Sulfate: 1 oz.
Used as a last resort to treat wines of excess hydrogen sulphide.

Copper Sulfate (1/10 normal) when added to a solution (wine) containing hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odor) will precipitate copper sulfide. If the wine is then fined and filtered, it will be purged of copper sulfide.

WARNING: COPPER SULFATE IS POISONOUS. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
