Default stopping 2nd fermentation

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned yet that adding sorbate to wines
that went through an ML is a big no-no as it's a pretty sure way of
ruining your wine past any recovery. ML bacteria in contact with
sorbate will produce a geranium off-odor.

That's not quite right. Running ML on a wine _after_ it has been sorbated
produces the geranium smell.
