Product Details
Campden Tablets are easy-to-use capsules of potassium metabisulfite; use to prevent oxidation and growth of wild yeast and bacteria in must. One tablet in one gallon of must yields 75 ppm total sulfur dioxide. Crush into a powder before using. Some beer brewers also use campden tablets to remove chlorine or chloramine from their brewing water.

The Picture has been corrected
I received the campden tabs exactly as pictured, in a plastic bag. It seems fine and sturdy enough, if you are concerned just reuse an old pill bottle with the label taken off and relabeled as Campden Tablets.Hard to expect more for 3.50.

Easy to Use
Making some hard cider, and got 5 gallons from a local orchard...no preservatives, not pasteurized either. This is a necessity! Tablets ground easy with a small mortar and pestle, did its job.

Chloramine no more
Never used this for treating wild yeasts in must, but following a suggestion on NB Forum I have used this for treating the chlorine issue in my municipal water. My system (Hetch Hetchy) switched to chloramine a few years ago, and no amount of boiling will remove it. I was struggling with chlorophenol aroma issues (band-aid / rubber) until I discovered this trick. Now I use it every batch - 1 caplet at the beginning of the process with my wort water - just toss it in. Works great.

As advertised
They do their job. Crushing the tablets is a little annoying, but it's not an issue.

Worked as expected
It does what it's meant to do, though I immediately swapped out the baggie for a pill bottle.

Not what is pictured
I'm sure the product works fine, but the packaging is very poor. When I look at the picture above, I see a (possibly glass) bottle. I'm sure many other people see the same thing.However when it gets to your door, I saw a flimsy plastic baggie in which the tablets ground together during shipping to the point that I can't even see them through the dust. Do they still contain the right dosage? No idea, I guess I'll find out when my expensive must goes awry.Two stars because at least the flimsy plastic baggie is resealable. Compare to Northern Brewer's Nutriferm packaging.

After adding the potassium metabisulfite to the must, how long do you let it do its thing before pitching yeast?
J O on Sep 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You'll want to let the must sit for 24 hours after adding potassium metabisulfite before pitching your yeast

or you'll risk the metabisulfite killing the yeast.
