Default Degassing hell

Just spent 35 minutes with my drill and the carboy.

I stirred the hell out of it, but the bubbles kept on coming. I am sure I got most of it, I hope.

I added the meta and "chiosan" packs and called it a day.

I also added some oak chips boiled for 10 minutes (not in recipe)

Question: will I have bubbly wine in 2 months?

Probably not! To check, pull out a sample and put it in a hydrometer jar. Put your hand over the opening, and shake it up. Then look and see if it's bubbly.

If your wine is fairly warm, the degassing goes pretty fast.

Thanks Yoop, but I just put it in a steady 56 degree environment. Will time (8 weeks} cure any bubbles?

Nope. Especially not at cellar temps.

Vacuum degassing would have straightened it out in minutes with no effort.
