I have a EP Pinot Noir that has been 30 days since I pitched the yeast.....Its been sitting in secondary now, and 1 week ago the S.G. was .998 at 74 degrees......I tested it today and its the same.....Should I continue on to stabilizing and clearing, or let it go longer......If I correct the hydrometer for temp. .998 at 74 is closer to 1.00

I am not a kit expert but in my opinion when a wine
has the same SG for that long (1 week) it looks to me that
it has finished.

I would continus to follow the kit directions and start to add finnings. Before you do that I would degas and that may help as well.

I haven't made enough EP kits (none in a couple of years either) to have a strong expectation of final sg. As every one else has said, it sounds done, so continue on with the instructions.

the abv should be over 10%, so that is really all that is needed to keep wine good for a long time. otherwise, you might not want to let it age for too long.
