My 1 gallon of raspberry wine has the raspberries in there (7 days now) but according to the recipe, it says about 5 days before it should hit 1.030sg. At that point I need to take the fruit out and transfer to secondary.

Day 6 is was 1.020 and today was 1.016. I searched out the forums but not finding anything anybody help out. I'm confused and need a bit of help. Leave it in there or transfer to the secondary ??

Appreciate anything.....thanks.

If your berries have been in the primary a week I would take them out. The berries should have imparted their flavor by now in the wine. I personally would transfer it now to secondary. I usually leave my fruit in the primary for around 5 days and each day or so punch the cap down, which is essentially pushing the bag of berries down into the wine and keeping them nice and wet.
