I don't think it's been .988, either, to be honest. Maybe check your hydrometer in distileld water to make sure it's not reading high or low. I don't think any wine, without being distilled, will drop below .990.

Thinking back I think I may have racked this wine too early. I had a couple other gallons of wine going that needed racked and I decided to go ahead and rack this one since I had eveything out. It was still slightly bubbling when I racked it. I guess whatever yeast is left over is now having to do the work the rest of the yeast would have done. Hopefully, the wine will stop fermenting in a few months. I am still new at this so I guess I have learned a valueable lesson :don't rack your wine too quickly.
