My First Batch of SP. Used the Sparkaloid and in 3 days it is Clear. Do you think I can move on to Racking and Back Sweeting. Or should I let it sit for another week and a half. It is Hot here and I want to Dig in :h

It is designed to be an early drinker. It may still drop a very fine sediment over tme and thats one of the reason we usually bulk age wines even after using a fining agent. If you dont mind a little dusting in your bottles possibly then move on. Make sure you add sulfite and sorbate if sweetening.

I racked it. Did the Sobate and sufite and Sparkoid. I am just suprized how clear it got so Fast. If I can Rush to My Second racking and back sweetin and let it sit for a litle longer it just means I can start on another Wine :b. I know Rush Is a Bad word in Wine Making but this is a fast drinker.

Well I had to Sample it and It is Yummy. Still needs to be back sweetened. But just used a simple syrup in my glass to sweeten and was nice.
