Personally I would wait to rack. I'd suggest leaving it for another 10 days. Make sure it's fully complete then rack and reuse the yeast. Patience is a virtue.

Keep up the winemaking!

Yes I realize what he said. Bray can clarify for himself. But consider, six total tablespoons of Fermaid K is a whole lot of Fermaid K for a five gallon batch. That's 18 teaspoons! I can see...

Nickwoo, yes loveofrose (Bray) is using 2.5 lbs. of honey per gallon so if you use 2.5 to 3 lbs. more honey and the balance with water to 6-6.5 gallons you should be fine.
