:confused:Hi all. Have a batch of wine that has completely fermented. Added Sparkolloid but the wine still won't clear after 3 rackings. Could the addition of crushed grapes added to the original mixture have done something to the wine that prevents if from clearing? Should I try a differrent substance to clarify the wine? Is it safe to drink. Smells ok. Very dry.

Thanks for any suggestions.

have a great night.

How long did you wait between each racking. It isn't the racking that clears the wine, it just takes the clear wine off of the sediment. I have never tried to use any clearing agent I just let mine clear on there own. Sometimes it takes quite some time to clear. I have a batch of apple that was finished fermenting about three weeks ago that still isn't clear.
