I was hoping it would not keep the very strange taste i on after the addition of isinglass and instead age out and be ok. Now it's been almost 4 months and it still has the off flavor. The whole flavor all together taste different and the wine is undrinkable. Anyone else have any issues like this with isinglass ? Is there any hope for this wine or any way to fix this ?
Walk through your steps as you added it.
How did you mix it, did it clear, how long did it sit on sediments, did you top up your carboy, how much isinglass did you add?
It is a fining agent, so if you tasted after you added, I would expect it would taste a bit strange.
