So I have my two "carboys" filled but when I filled the extra into a body it came out a completely different color... http://i.imgur.com/CTCyQ.jpg (Yeah I wasn't expecting the extra, I don't know why I didn't take into account the juice from the strawberries, as if it was going to come out at 2 gallons because I put 2 gallons water in it, facepalm. I have a sanitized napkin over it for the time being but I'm thinking of just shutting the lid and having that bottle carbonated, like sparkling wine.)

I had originally put it all together in a bottling bucket so wouldn't it have been mixed up? How did one bottle come out a different color. I forgot to put a campden pellet crushed into that bottle, could that have affected the color? This is a strawberry wine btw.

Taste okay, a little bitter like too much tannin. Can I add sugar to sweeten while it's sitting in the secondary or should conditioning it for several months change that. Also will it clear up over time or should I opt for a clearing agent? I don't mind the unfiltered look, I like it in my beer making at least, but for wine does it matter?

Sorry for all the questions guys, first time wine making.
