I started my first batch of wine on 5/24 a Winexpert Australian shiraz now on day 4 the airlock has stopped bubbling. I took a hydrometer reading today and it is 1.000 the original reading on the 24th was 1.080. Should I go ahead to the next step and rack to the glass carboy even though I am several days early but I meet the hydrometer reading requirements of less than 1.010 or is there still a small amount of fermentation going on and I need to leave it alone.

thanks!!!

Some wines ferment faster than others. Yours are one of them. Transfer now leaving the lees behind and follow step 2.

Although honestly there's nothing wrong with leaving it 3 more days and racking at the 1 week mark.

It'll help drop more yeast out of suspension too.
