    Thanks, No there isn't any sediment nor is it clear. I racked it 3 times as the fermentation was proceeding. It isn't sweet - sweet nor is it dry. I'd say the temp has been in the 60s where it's at. Sorry it took so long to reply but I didn't notice the reply.

    I have two different wines in two different carboys. One (3 gal) has been sitting 8 months and the other (5 gal) has been sitting at least 9 months.
