Okay I just racked off of the lees thrown by Super Kleer. Not a lot there but I suppose it did its job. Next issue... what do I do about the haze? I shone a light through the wine near the neck of the carboy. I definitely see the beam. What is a next step I could try to clear this? Pectic enzyme? Polyclar? Both? Do I need to get the cash up for a filter system?

Give it a couple weeks to clear up. It'll come around! Did you degass well?

Sounds like you may stay have excess gas. You will need to make sure it is fully degassed to get it to clear properly.

Can you give a few more bits of information please. Like what kind of wine is it? how long ago did it finish primary fermentation?

Its a cab-sauv that was racked to secondary three weeks ago. I added the SK and let it sit for three days. The directions said 24 to 48 hours I believe.

cab-sauv. from grapes? Even if it's from juice or a kit 3 weeks in secondary needs alot more time to settle out. I've had a cab. sauv. that has taken 2 yrs. to be even drinkable, let time be your friend on this one.
