I think you’ll be just fine. I say rack it, sulfite it, and maybe add some bentonite / sparkalloid, before letting it settle for a few weeks. The yeast and most of the nutrient should settle out but you don’t want it sitting on that energizer too long. Rack, filter, and bottle when it’s clear. Just in case that extra nutrient spurs some unwanted visitors, I’d also probably prioritize those bottles for consumption first.

i racked and while doing so i filtered it through a 1 micron filter, had sulfide when raked, I'd racked it as soon as I seen what I'd done gave some thought of blending it with a lower alcohol spiced apple, the peach is a minimum of 18% ABV , racking was way before coming to the computer,,
thank you

just did not know what it'd do to the taste,

I don't think it will do much to the taste. Obviously you're wine won't use it, the big concern with adding extra nutrients and energizer is that spoilage organisms would eat them and flourish, but at 18% abv there probably isn't much chance of that. Maybe go a bit higher on kmeta, but that's probably all I'd do.


And you gotta stop sampling quite so much. 🙂🙃😇😇

don’t worry. everything will fine. Everyone makes errors in the beginning.

congrats on your 1st fermentation.
@Ajmassa you cod, lol , I've thought and thought, and no matter what you're right, one was a brute trash can of wine and the other brute was full of unpitched must ,so at that moment i did mess up my first wine in a barrel i messed up because the second had must in it, technically kinda sorta ,, i stand here whimpering like a puppy ,,, lol bone head,,, 😁
