    So when I store my glass carboys I always add about a tablespoon of potassium metabisulphite (PM) in them so nothing will grow/spawn/evolve......
    If I put a jar of water and PM in the keezer will this stop mold from growing?

    Best way to keep mold at bay is by using a desiccant or dehumidifier to reduce moisture and cleaning periodically with a good disinfectant.

    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
