I normally harvest the Hersbrucker about a week before my cascade. Usually the last week of August or first of September.
It seems to work for me.  :cheers:

Nice! I find my hersbrucker mature faster with fatter cones. But the cascade produces more cones but thin and longer.

When do you plan on harvesting your hersbrucker? Mine are starting to feel pretty papery. Last year I harvested at the same time as everything else (early sept) and I think that was too long.

Sulfites also strip the oxygen present and is a preserving agent
Another tip when bottling hoppy beer is to fill the bottle almost completely. Like 1cm headspace

Yeah, not getting an infection from the vessel, because I have done the same when fermenting in glass, so that isn't it.

Thought camden tabs were just for getting chlorine out of the water? I start with RO and adjust as needed from there.

One thing that come to my mind since you mention IPA is hop creep
Take a bottle and pour a sample thru a coffee filter then take a gravity reading to see where it's at now
Might be a good idea to add of a camden tablet when bottling
