Should I rack off the lees or leave it a bit longer.
You can leave it for 45-60 days or so if you need to, but certainly leave it at least 30 days before racking again. The lees should compact down a bit.
Apples and crabapples will throw lots of lees at first, but then it will stop and you'll just have a light dusting of lees the next time!
