    Poor form asking for help before writing an intro, but here I am :)

    Two weeks ago today I started my first wine (Winexpert Pinot Grigio Rose). I haven't looked at the wine since maybe the beginning of the week. My previous peeks were just very quick, but there were a couple peeks under the lid.

    I have been brewing beer and thought my sanitation practices were pretty good, but I'm wondering if I'v missed something because I think I have mold floating on my wine :(

    So in short, does this look like mold or is it just left over krausen? I thought I remembered all of it being gone so...

    Thanks very much for looking.

    I should add... planning on racking to secondary tomorrow regardless and seeing what happens. I'm just very curious if this is a mold or some other anomaly.

    My understanding (limited) is that mold is fuzzy. So if what you are seeing is not fuzzy, it's probably fine.

    it is not mold looks like particulates of yeast floating to surface. just rack add k-meta. rack again in three days off of gross lees, then again in three weeks off of fine lees add k-meta again then go for clearing and aging.
