Default Potassium Sorbate

I have started a rhubarb wine. I accidentally dumped some Potasium
Sorbate Into it at the same time I added the yeast. Since the Potassium
Sorbate keeps fermentation from starting is there any eay to get
fermentation going?

Thanks for the group.

Make a starter culture of the same yeast in sugar-water, and wait until that's fermenting
vigorously -- a couple of days, probably. Add that to your wine, and it MIGHT work.
