    Put in a tube or small bottle and shake it, if it fizzes not degassed. Or try tasting it, if it is like Pepsi cola, not degassed.

    That's good news. When it's clear you can rack it and backsweeten. After a week you can bottle it.

    Make sure you stabilize it before sweetening. If you don't you stand a very good chance of it refermenting. K-meta and pot. sorbate to stabilize. If it referments in the bottle you are in for a treat. Lots of cleanup corks blowing and possibly bottles exloding. Arne.

    Man that looks good there, just back sweetened the sp and tasted it man it taste good. But it made it cloudy again. I made a simple syrup on the stove let it cool then added it. Will it clear again?

    You really should rack before you backsweeten. I imagine it will clear, but I've never done it this way before. Patience cures almost everything in winemaking. Let me know how it progresses.

    They are PET bottles I found on Amazon. First time I've used them. I like them.

    You think a little of sparkloid would it help along? It is holding a Mt.Dew like haze.

    It might. You've already added it once, right? If it's colder outside than inside where you live, it might benefit from the cooler temperature.

    I looked at it earlier it is starting to clear again. So I’m going to hold off on adding anymore since it is doing itself.
