Thanks for responding. I was going by the recipe you put up on Page 1 of this thread -
"Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 30
Additional Fermentation: Rack until clear
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 30"
The 5 day mark is not mentioned anywhere. I interpreted the idea above as - the wine should be allowed to remain in the same storage in which the juice, sugar, yeast, and energizer was added for 30 days or until clear, whichever is longer. It should then be racked to another storage, and kept there for 30 days, and then bottled. What am I getting wrong?
