Can someone help me identify what protien looks like. I made a LE16 Grenache Cabernet, i racked after secondary fermentation to a clean carboy, (sg.992) thouroughly vacum degassed and used the drill wand, and added the oak cubes as specified in the instructions, topped off with a bit of merlot, attached airlock. Instructions say cubes were suppose to sink after a few days, after 8 days they have not dropped and there appears to be a couple chunckies of the lees that floated to the top of my carboy as well. I sanitized a spoon and gave it a little stir thinking the lees had attacked itself to an oak cube but looks like it just wants to float there with the unsinkable cubes, is this protien? Should i add some more pectic enzyme or benonite? Leave it alone and rack it in a few days?
