So we don't have a way to remove so2 without creating so4?

Oddly enough I didn't have much problems with lagers at that dose... but then they tend to disappear in the lager chamber for a few months.

With wheat beers/ales its andifferent story. There the dose definitively needs to be lower. About 40 mg for me.

PS: I did a Weizen with pre-boil but no SMB once. It's ok but I concluded finding the minimum dose for ones setup gives a better result

The long-term solution is to fine tune the SMB dosage to your system.

Short term solutions for a completed beer:

Lager longer;

Bubble CO2 through the beer;

Add 5-10% krausen beer (this has worked well for me a few times);

Put a penny in the bottom of the glass each time you pull a pint;
If you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get what you've always gotten.

Have started lowering the dose already, but I have a helles that has so much residual smb that with a penny added the sulfer goes, but sulfate shows up and makes for wonderful malt character and an off putting bitterness.

Sounds like a candidate for a dump and rebrew.

How long did you condition it and what was your strain?

It's getting rebrewed, was hoping to save a great beer with to much smb.
