Well, it has been 11 days since we last tested the wine. Yesterday evening it was time to test it again.
It tested well under the percentage it needed to be at, soooo, time to put in the ingredients to help clarify the wine and stir, stir, stir to get the gas out.
Glen didn’t realize how much gas was in the wine which resulted in a panic on our part…..it erupted. When it died down it looked like we had killed someone in our bathroom. It sprayed all over the walls and mirror. Thank God we decided to do this next to the bathtub!
After getting things cleaned up and the head on the wine died down we stirred, and stirred and stirred some more. All the gas has to be removed or the wine won’t clear. No one wants cloudy muddled looking wine.
The wine…..it was very gassy 🙂 Now it must sit for two weeks before we can bottle it.
