Hi all, I'm doing my first batch using a Wild Grapes Merlot kit and adding a reserve (flavor) pack a friend had leftover from one of their kits. (Black Raspberry Merlot - I figure at least if the wine itself is "meh" it'll at least be fruity?) The stats: Current stage: primary fermentation, day 8 (instructions said 14 days) Starting SG 1.0899 Current SG .996 The next step in the kit is to rack it and stir in Potassium Metabisulphite and Potassium Sorbite, de-gas it and stir in Kieselsol, leave sit for 24 hours and then stir in the reserve and Chitosan. I assume also top it up but the kit doesn't mention that. Note: I can't use the Chitosan because I'm allergic to shellfish. The dilemma: I am leaving tomorrow morning and won't be back until Sunday night. Then gone again Tuesday night. Should I: 1. Leave it in primary for 3 or 4 more days until I can do all of that, including the 24 hour sit 2. Rack it, de-gas it and add the P.M. and P.S. then let it sit until Sunday and then add the reserve and top it up 3. Rack it, add everything now, and call it good for secondary fermentation 4. Something else?
