I am in the clearing process of an Island Mist Wine. Noticed that there is sediment on the side of the carboy.
Previous wines did not have this. I don't think this is a big deal. should I just leave it there and try to siphon around it when bottling OR gently stir it off the sides?

In 2nd week of clearing. Normally I would just stir it up again and I know waiting is better but this cheap batch is to just pass the time and drink while waiting for the other wines to age.

Thanks

Bill, Give your carboy a sharp twist ad the sediment should fall.

Yep I learned. So now I move my carboys to where I rack a day in advance and give them that little twist like Wolf mentioned.

Sorry I didn't get back sooner. Thank you for the tip.
I tried the sharp twist. I worked pretty good. Did 2 more times at 1 hour intervals. Stirred up a little on the bottom but not much.
