Group,

Do you squeeze the wine from your raisins? I have a couple wines that are looking very good and taste great but I haven't bottled them just yet because I dread the loss from the raisins. I am thinking about flooding a bucket with CO2 and pouring into a mesh bag then squeezing the caught fruit bits. Does this sound like a bad plan?

Thanks!

I would rack off the raisins then take what's left and strain to get the remaining wine.

The mesh bag would be great.

I racked the clear good stuff from them and then it got messy. I have the remainder back in a carboy clearing again with a shot of co2 on it to protect it.
