So...what happens when the wine in your secondary gets down to about, oh...say .988 SG? :< I'm just guessing, because my hydrometer only goes down to .990.
Could the reading need adjusting for temperature?
A check of the hydrometer shows 1.000 at 70 F, and about .999 at 80 F.Have you checked the calibration of your hydrometer? The paper inside may have slipped a bit.
BTW, I've seen just below .990 before. It was when using Turbo Yeast with a sugar-water mixture.
I might sell it to the local model rocket club.....you could name it "sahara"
