The Wine Pages: Homebrew winemaking
The aim now is to take the murky looking alcholic slosh and turn it into wine that follows these requirments.
This is dead easy to achieve. It is a process of clearing and racking that has no real set pattern, the following is just a guide.
Clearing is also aided by cold. Keeping wine made in the summer until cooler weather before worrying about the clarity of the homemade homebrew wine is a good idea. The cooler weather helps the wine clear.
Wine also clears better when it has been de-gassed to remove as much dissolved carbon dioxide as possible - stir rapidly to release this gas.
Sometimes pouring some clear wine into the job of the demi-john can help to carry the much down and clear the wine.>
