Sodium Metabisulphite


Sodium Metabisulphite is a strong sterilising powder that once dissolved in cold water (where it forms sulfur dioxide gas)  will inhibit the growth of mould and bacteria on all surfaces it comes into contact with.   Used to sterilise brewing  and winemaking equipment and beer and wine bottles.

This product sterilises (sanitises) but does not clean.  Equipment should be clean prior to using this product.

Doseage rate is 1 tablespoons per 5 litres of water.  Allow solution to touch all surfaces. This dilution rate  is for sterilising of equipment only.

Note: Sodium metabisulphite is used in some instances as a preservative, however you should follow food application laws exactly and obtain information regarding its use from food safety authorities.
for winemakers, potassium metabisulphite is more commonly used.


 Some people may be sensitive to the sulfur fumes from this product. Do not use in closed spaces.

It is recommended to wear gloves when handling diluted solution.
