Hi,

I found that it has been formed a huge sediment in my cherry wine. What would I do? Should I get rid off this sediment?

It is half a bottle of sediment. It's bottled and it's 6 months old. This is a recycled bottle. I thought that I've squeezed out a substantial amount of pulp. On the other hand, it has got a substantial amount of alcohol: I had 12 bottles of cherry wine. I already consumed 10 bottles.

Was there that much stuff floating in there when you first bottled it?

How long did you wait before bottling? For that much to fall out of the wine would mean the wine had to either be very cloudy or some sort of chemical reaction took place to precipitate that much in one bottle.

No, there wasn't much stuff floating in the bottles when I first bottled them. But I must say that my bottled wines were cloudy.

I immediately bottled the wine when the fermentation is finished. Two of my bottles have the same amount of sediments.

I'm a little worried that you've had a re-ferment. But you'd probably have corks blowing out of bottles by now.
