Interestingly enough it appeared my fermentation stopped a little earlier than my other fruit wines. Was .998sg (most my fruit wines end up .990-.994) so i racked into secondary to let the seeiment settle and see if fermentation took off again which after two days it had not, still at .998, i didnt want it sitting there without sulphate so i added a 1/2tsp kmeta to it until i had a chance to get back to it. Went down to check on another batch of wine just now and noticed the trails through the sediment and bubbles so i checked it and its now at 0.996 and fermenting again even after i added the sulphite, i guess i jumped the gun on adding the sulphate but looks like this cherry wine wants to ferment a bit more.
