For my first batch of kit wine, after a full 14 days of clearing/stabilizing, I racked into the primary (Big Mouth Bubbler) and then bottled right away, on day 28. (The wine was nice and clear with very little visible sediment at the bottom of the carboy in which it had been resting, undisturbed, for a full two weeks to clear.)
For this batch, since fermentation completed and it was racked into the glass carboy, it has been sitting undisturbed for 12 days and looks beautifully clear; however, there is a visible, thicker layer of sediment at the bottom of the carboy (maybe 3/4 of an inch?)
Is it better to rack it off that sediment now, or, will a day or two longer not risk development of off-flavors?
If I rack off the sediment then leave it another few days or week, then rack again and bottle, is it an unnecessary racking (risking unnecessary introduction of oxygen)?
As the wine above the sediment seems nice and clear already, I'm tempted to just rack into the primary and bottle immediately.
Practically speaking, it is only pushing the timeline up by a day and a half, but I know enough to understand that "I don't know what I don't know" and it would be better to get more context than to make a pricey mistake and assume that a couple of days won't make a difference.
