remineralization question

After generating RO water, do you run an airstone and let the water off gas BEFORE or AFTER adding the remineralizer?

Doesn't mater. Any gases in the RO water will not affect the chemistry of the remineralizer.

CO2 levels will be slightly higher in water without any KH, and may help dissolve the compounds of the mineralized (depending on the mix).

But it makes sense to aerate well right before making the water change.
