YES To the big glass of filtered 'leftovers' !You can also get a Vinbrite Mark Iii Wine Filter from Amazon for about $40. It's a gravity feed system that works best for 1-2 gallon batches. For the first few racks, I use patience (and a wine thief lol). For the really fine, minute sediment left, I use the filer and syphon into a big wine glass and drink to a finished batch.
Yup. I need to find a tall slender jar that I can use my wine thief in - let the sediment fall to bottom and pull of the clear. standard quart and pint jars stir up too easy when I take them out to pull off the sediment. Guess I have somethng to look for in the glass bins at our recycling center now.I just got the vinbrite so it's kinda like a new toy to me. Cold crash works for settling sediment and a 1/4 tube (while super slow) works to drain to glass for drinking
