    If it's weak, it's not going to get any stronger. I'd consider some other alternative. Maybe
    you could blend it with fruit juices, and make a lower ABV sangria, and bottle that? I've had
    some weak win...

    You can finish it by TG! Don't listen to naysayers :)Start in a bucket, keep in open, covered
    bucket until 1.000. Maybe 4 days? Rack into CB, let it finish to 0.990. Maybe 7 more days. Rack
