hi people, i am making california merlot, cellar craft and i am in the clearing stage, where i put in the little powder bags to stop fermenting and then the chisosan and kieselol (spl) i think thats to group all particles together and clear the wine. the wine is now in a glass 23 litre carboy or glass bottle with air tight rubber bung with with the airlock plastioc piece in it. there were some bubbles in the next couple of days and i stirred it couple of times a day as per instructions to free gases. but the airlock is still releasing gasses and it has been over a week. although very seldom but i was under the impression this should have stopped by now as it is supposed to be ready for bottling next week. does anyone know if this is cool or will i have exploding wine bottles........also what can i do to rack from the glass to the plastic carboy thats easier than sucking on tube, there very strong smell off top of bottle due to rubber bung . its my first wine batch so all advice appreciated. cheers.
