Last Phase – Wine Update

Standard

Looks like a surgical table, lol.   It’s time to add the clarifying stuff.  We used the tubing to transfer the wine from the carboy to the bucket.

But FIRST, time to taste!  And let me just say – it is stinkin’ yummy!  So smooth and a bit fruity.

This is the degassing tool attached to a drill.  After adding the clarifying stuff (which all comes in your wine kit) it’s time to beat it.

Carbon dioxide is left in the wine after fermentation. If you don’t “degas” your wine it can end up being carbonated, it won’t clarify properly and it can increase the sensation of acidity.  So whip it, whip it good! LOL (can’t help myself)   We siphoned  the wine back into the carboy for another couple of weeks and then it’s time to BOTTLE!!!!! Yahoo
