Racking The Wine
Sunday it was time to check the gravity of the wine. If it tests within a certain range it is time to siphon it off the sediments into a clean secondary container.
Here is the wine in the fermenting bucket. The yeast and grapes have been very happy together.
Here we are testing the gravity of the wine. It tested perfectly, so we siphoned it into a clean secondary container called a carboy.
Glug, glug, glug….
This is the sediment that was left at the bottom of the fermenting bucket.
The wine has to continue to ferment in the carboy for another 10 days when we will test it again. So…..stay tuned.
