Default Grape juice wine

Hi

I have been trying grape juice wine, by the gallon.

I have one going with white grape juice, all has one well till I racked from a brown demijon to a clear when racking.

The liquid is very white, not clear kind of milky white?

What's gone wrong?

Thanks

I can't picture it. Can you link to a photo so I can see what you mean?

Is the wine topped up to the neck of the demijohn so there is no headspace? Is it out of the light? Is "milky white" the color, or the consistency?

I will get a picture when I can, yes it's topped to neck. It's been kept in the dark. Milky white colour, consistency seems normal

I don't know where that color is coming from, unless it's yeast or some pectin starting to fall out. But don't worry about it at this point, unless it forms a skin or something on the top.

Have you tried tasting it? Or smelling it? I would lean towards pectin haze myself if it smells/tastes ok.

When you get down to your final gravity, give it a taste.

If it tastes like wine you just have a haze problem most likely. A bit of racking and time should help.

If it tastes 'off' you may have caught something.

Hope its just a pectin haze!
