Welcome to the forum Skod. Sorry I can't answer your question. I don't know anything about kits, but I was intrigued by a 7 day kit.

There are many members in here who are familiar with kits, it is early, but am sure someone may be able to advise you.

I am curious to see what they say and to learn more of this 7 day kit. Most wines aren't even done fermenting in 7 days.

Hang in there. We'll see what we can do to help you out.

First post or thousandth post, what I've seen here are nice people.

Not familiar with your kit manufacturer but if it's still cloudy after the instructions say it should be clear then my first thought would be that you didn't degas enough and there is still too much co2 holding particles in suspension.

Did the kit specify methods of degassing (generally stirring vigorously multiple times over multiple days BEFORE adding the clarifyer?

Also, you state 7 day kit. Was that correct?

I appolagize. I was mistaken and have edited my original post. Is there any website listed on the packaging for the original manufacturer of this kit? I couldn't seem to find it with a quick searc. I am not interested enough to go any further, but am sure interested in the whole 7 day idea, although it may not be available here in the US.

Good luck all the same. Will be following this post.

I looked again SKOD. Found plenty of sites that advertised this kit for sale but it might help if you could come up with the manufacturers website. Maybe not. Theres a chance someone in here is familiar with this brand. We have several members from the UK, and other parts of the world so don't despair.

In my experience, which is not great, but my Nephew does a super home made wine, the secret of a clear wine is the degassing. He decants one bin into another about 6 times, if you don't do it that way stir and agitate for about 10 minutes every couple of hours until you don't get any froth on top.

Madchef, degassing is a big part of clearing a wine. So is aging it properly. I would be concerned though racking a wine six times in a row and introducing all of the oxygen. Splash racking with a vacuum pump would be a safer solution with the same results. Thanks for sharing though as you are right, degassing is essential for clear wine.
