First time wine making (wine expert - Gewurztraminer) - I had it in the bucket for 2 weeks, then a week & a half in a carboy before I attempted degassing.
That is where things went bad - I thought the idea was to whip it hard as possible so I went through 2 drill batteries and whipped it for about 45 mins.
Now after 8 days, the directions say that the wine should be clear, but it is not even close.
I kinda know from beer that time is never a problem - but is that the same for wine? I saw a video online where a guy was saying he was always a week or a month late because life took over.
I would love to get it bottled and drinking by the end of the summer, but I am fine with waiting if it would turn out better.
Any input to point me in either direction?
Should I just go ahead and rack it one last time or is it ok to let it sit a couple more weeks?
Thanks for any pointings
