When you rerack from one carboy to another you'll loose a little bit to yeasty yuck at the bottom. The half gallon is what I keep aside for topping up. You want to keep the level of the wine up to the neck of the carboy.

Until it's clear. If it gets too much gunk on the bottom re-rack gain.

I ended up only racking twice. I racked it out of the primary bucket, and 3 months later I racked it off the lees. A month or two later it had been clear for several weeks, so I bottled it.

Just started a batch of this over the weekend. It is fermenting like crazy. The sweet scent of this fermentation is filling the house. Hopefully this comes out as sweet as it is smelling.

Been going now for 2 weeks. Started at 1.118 now sitting at 1.032. The wine is VERY sweet, but also very cloudy yet. I know it has a ways to go yet....

You're just about at 12% so sounds lie it's going to be tasty and strong.

Could someone post a picture of the finished product? I'd love to see it. I imagine it looking as great as it tastes, and look forward to starting a batch!
