thanks in advance for the help,
I usually only leave my wine in primary about 7 days, or until fermentation slows down. Then, I move to secondary, top up, and add the airlock. If you're already under airlock, it's fine but make sure you rack off any lees if it's still in primary. Also, top up so that there is very little headspace.
Then, just wait. That's all there is to it! Taking SG readings can be helpful if you're an impatient type, but it's not necessary at this point.
