Default First wine cloudy after stabilize and backsweeten

Hi all last night I stabilized my apfelwein with 2.5 crushed campden and 2 1/2 ts k-sorbate then back sweetened a little to about 1.02 then syphoned from bucket back to carboy. Was planning to bottle Thursday so I can take a bottle or two out of town this weekend.Immediately after transferring I noticed my wine is no longer clear.I can't see all the way thru the carboy. Is this normal will it clear.?

My meads do that too. Back sweetening always cloudy's it up. It will be a couple weeks I think befor back to being as clear as it was. Bit then again this being a wine and not a mead it may clear sooner.
