I am making the Washington Merlot wine kit. During primary fermentation my wine must's average temperature was 68'. As a result I waited 2 more days before transferring it to the 2nd carboy (which the instructions say I can do).
The instructions require that I degas on day 20, and clear on day 22. My question, since I waited two additional days during the primary fermentation, should I degas on day 22 & clear on day 24? Or should I not stray from the timeframe outlined in the instructions?
Thanks in advance,
