Thanks!

The 416101 is the bigger bag of the two sizes I got.

Since I don't quite know how long before I need the carboy back, plus I have never made a white before, I think I will follow the directions pretty closely this time. Maybe next time I will skip the fining. How long do you find you need to let the wine (white specifically) sit in the carboys to get similar clarity to fining? Or are you simply not worried about clarity?

I usually bulk age anywhere from as little as 6, up to as long as 12 months. I have yet to skip the finings on a white, this will be my first. If it doesn't clear out to my liking I can always add them later to get it clear prior to bottling. But the reds I've done, have cleared just fine in that time.

Sounds like you need more carboys either way.
