    Was looking at adding some pumpkin pie spice to my pumpkin beer, yes im a little late for the season but its BEER. On the ingredients list, the only thing that im worried about is sulfiding agents, not sure if I should worry about this or no. It inhibits oxygenation but will that mess up the fermentin process?

    Sulfiding agents? Are you talking about sulfites?

    My guess is metabisulfite. Yes it will inhibit oxidation. No, at the amounts you would use as an antioxidant it won't harm the yeast. And if you handle the beer carefully, you don't need it.
