Default forgotten skeeter pee

i made my skeeter pee about two months ago and after the first week I've kinda neglected it...looked today and it is crystal clear...

can i add the powders minus the clearing agent and back sweeten today? or should i add the powders and wait a week or two and then back sweeten?

i didn't know if the 2 week wait was just for the pee to clear or...?

thanks
Sean

Powders meaning the yeast energizer and nutrient?

Check its gravity. If it's completely fermented out (1.000ish or below) then it's ready for bottling.

Before you stabilize (I assume that's what you meant by "powders", you have to rack off of the sediment. Otherwise, fermentation will just restart.

To do that, dissolved the stabilizers in water (usually it's 1/2 teaspoon sorbate and one crushed campden tablet per gallon). Pour that into the receiving carboy and rack the wine into it. Wait three days, then sweeten to taste. Wait three more days (to ensure fermentation hasn't restarted) and then bottle.

I'd take a gravity. Rack to new container. If gravity was about 1.000 or lower, add the sugar and metabi sulfate and potasium sorbate. Mix together- particuarly the sugar.
take another Gravity reading Wait 2 weeks to be sure the sugar/fermentation/gravity stays the same. If it ferments again, wait until it stops taste sweeten repeat.

yeah sorry a little vague on my part...

i am going to rack and stabilize... (i was to lazy to look up chemicals names)

i was wondering if i need to wait to sweeten... i think I'll rack and sorbate today...then sweeten on thursday and then bottle the following weekend...

assuming no re fermentation has started and its dry today before i sorbate...

does this sound reasonable?

thanks
Sean
