I recently started two of my first batches of wine. One rose and one dandelion. They have been in the primary container for a week, and I am about to strain them into the secondary. Unfortunately, I will be out of town a week from now. I would really appreciate any recommendations as far as what to do to continue fermentation the best way possible. As far as i know, the options are to transfer to the secondary now, and then rack in a week before I leave for an extended period. Or, leave in the secondary for a period of months. Am I correct in this assumption? Any thoughts on the best way to proceed?
Thanks so much, I really appreciate any input.
