No. I think it was chitisan(spelling?). It was a clearing agent that came with kit. I'm wondering if I didn't let it sit long enough after adding?

Did you filter it any? I run mine through a filter about two days before bottling then filter again the day I bottle it. I still some times have a little sediment but not that much.

No filter. Just racked before bottling.

I never use finings in my wine and have never had that much sediment. I usually let mine set for 6-12 months in secondary though. Is that big lumpy thing on the left the sediment or just the dots along what is the side of the bottle that are the sediment?

Both are sediment, that's why I'm worried. I think I might pour all the bottles back into the primary bucket to minimize oxidation, then rack back to carboy for a month or so. Any thoughts?

I use a mini jet filter and it does a pretty good job. I have not had any sediment as of yet.

I just got done pouring the bottles into a primary bucket then racked to a carboy and topped off with a store bought wine. I added 3!more of Campden tablets. There was a lot of sediment left in the primary that I poured into. I'll update in a few weeks.

Let it sit for about a week maybe 2. I highly suggest running it through a filter or some cheese cloth folded to 3 or 4 ply. Before bottling again.

Curious on this: If you can filter by running through cheese cloth, would using a coffee filter accomplish the same with smaller particles? Just curious if anyone has tried that the way that you are describing.
