Sounds like time to stablize and then sweeten and watch a little.

did your pee clear? how long does it normally take to clear? I'm still degassing mine, lots and lots of foam still...gotta figure out how to hook up my foodsaver to get it to degass for me instead of the cordless drill whip type attachment, it just mixes up the sediment again each time...

HAHAHA! I know right? I just found some others post on it and thought...wait a minute...I got one sitting on a shelf in the basement...just got to try to figure out a way to get the smaller hose to attach to my larger one for hooking up to the rubber stopper...I also saw yuri_rage's video, but I'm not sure how he was able to hook up the canister attachment to a hose to get that to work either...but...I'm sure I'll either find it thru searching or figure out my own way.

oh...another way I just found doing some searches...I have one of those wine saver pumps, where you put the stopper on your partially finished bottle of wine, and then pump on the top and you pump all the air out of it so it stays fresh...also pumps all the CO2 out of my 1G glass carboys too giddy up!!!

I'm not sure how well it's going to work but, I bought a break bleeding tool for this task. It was 15 bucks and I need one for the shop anyway. I'll try it soon and report back.

You might look at the barbed fittings for plyable water line for an adapter/solution. That's my plan. I just hope I don't pull the stopper into the carboy. I might ziptie it to a stick or something before I start pullling on the wine too much..
