Hey Steve, I went ahead and poured the left wine that was left in the bottom of the bottles through a non-bleached coffee filter. It tastes ok, still very young but the filter caught alot of the sediment.

The 1st pic is the filter with the stuff at the bottom after the wine drained through.

2nd is the filtered wine. Pretty clear compared to what was in the bottle.

Filter again before you bottle it again an you should have little to no sediment in your bottles.

for next time:

Did you do the stirring after adding the various finings? If you don't mix it properly you are going to have blobs and it isn't going to work properly.

I mixed it pretty well. I used a wine whip. Is there anything else I can do at this point? Should I try to add another clearing agent or just let it sit for a week or so?

I've only had sediment on the last bottle or two from a batch when I did a sloppy racking job.

If the finings didn't work I'd consider long term aging in a carboy. Read this for some good info WineMaker Magazine - Story Index - Aging - Aging Your Kit: Wine Kits
