Default Clearing question

Made 2 kits for a buddy...problem is I think I might have mixed up the chemicals (chitosan vs isinglass) Both were pinots...one red, one white. Is this a problem? White seems cloudy still after a few days.

Anyone? Should I be adding something to the still cloudy white pinot?

What do you mean by mixed up? You don't know which is which? Isinglass looks like a sperm sample if that helps any.

What I am saying is I made 2 kits...forgot which took Chitosan vs Isinglass and may have put them in the wrong kit.

Don't know of Chitosan but Isinglass is great stuff. I would say the Isinglass was meant for the white wine. If you are looking for crystal clear wine I think you need to be patient.

Made a lot of kits and haven't seen one take this long to clear up after adding the final chemicals. The Isinglass went into the white this time for sure.

Any other comments? This is the first kit I've made that is this hazy only days before instructions say to bottle (i know instructions are a guideline but this is odd).
