Will I just leave this racking alone until 3 months out or if there is a inch or so of sediments before racking again to another carboy?

back a few years ago i spent 11 months in SICU & ICU , then it was another year before i got to where i could go home, during that 2 years my nephew kept my airlocks full, so i had all from scratch strawberry, blackberry and a apple/pear/crab apple,, all sitting on gross lees, not something to be recommended, but all three were still good,

If you have an measureable amount of lees 1/8" or more in the next couple of weeks, I would rack it to a fresh carboy. Don't need to add more K-meta but rack it off the lees. Get the hard parts done now and then you can sit back and plot & plan more batches.

Love homewinery.com concentrates. I use 1 1/2 Gallon concentrae and 12 lbs of frozen blackberries. I may try Dawg's guidance of upping the concentrate on my next batch. I also spike my 6 gal batches with 2 750 ml Blackberry Brandy. Yum. My Blackberry hooch receives rave reviews.
