Hello to all, I m new at this and after racking a couple times and bottling my wine there seems to be sedments in the bottom of the wine bottles... What am i doing wrong? Any help i would be grateful for....Thanks.
I agree that we need more info to analzye this wine but must say that unless it is wine diamonds(titrate that has precipated out at cooler temps) then you have bottled to early. Are you storing these bottles at very cool temps, that would make a wine drop the diamonds but they would be very gritty where as sediment is very soft and typiacally very easily stirred back into your wine making it cloudy.
This is my first batch of grape wine and i was told to let it ferment and sat 2 weeks then rack then sat 2 more weeks rack again then bottle... bad info huh? Lol.. Sedments are soft ,thin and cloudy.After fermenting is done how long do i wait to rack and how many times do i rack and then let it sit before bottling?Seems like you guys are on top of your game...lol.. Any help would be great thank you guys..... The bottles wasn t stored in cool temps.
I rack afetr I accumulate about an inch the first time and then every other month until there is no sediment dropping anymore. I also sulfite and sorbate when its done fermenting and then sulfite every 3 moths after that. Most of us actually like to let it bulk age for 6 months to a year.
Sorry about that cpfan.... It was grape concentrate that i used and i dont think i want to listen to my source anymore i'd rather learn from you guys lol... any help or tips would be great.Just think i got bad info...Thank you.
