I agree. you have very little room for the wine to release co2 after being agitated during racking. i always rack at 1.000 and always get 1 to 2 inches of foam for a couple days. if i filled my carboys to your level, i would always have foam in the airlock. your wine will be fine

I find hydrometers hard to read. Also the difference between almost done and all done is miniscule. I once tried to use/read/record the SG and in the end concluded it is more trouble then it is worth. The ONLY benefit is determining the final ABV, but I can easily just make up a number and call it that.

It settled out after a few days. Yesterday I stabilized and cleared it. Everything appears to be normal.
