Default Super Kleer Question

Last week I went to clear a batch of peach-apricot chardonnay that had finished fermenting.

I used the two step clarifier Super Kleer. On the instructions on the front, it neglected to mention that the second packet should be added 1-24 hours after the first packet.

So, I added both at the same time. Its been one week, a lot of sediment did drop out of suspension, but it is still a little hazy. Do I wait another week? Or have I permanently screwed up, and I need to dose it again?

It might be pectin haze and not yeast...I have accidentally added them at the same time and it worked fine...

i doubt its pectin, i used pectic enzyme as prescribed at the beginning. i suppose ill rack it off the lees that are there, and see how it looks then.
