It has been about 3 1/2 to 4 weeks since I started this process. Fermentation has stopped completely. Is it time to bottle the wine or do I need to let it sit for a little while longer?

Is it clear? If you plan on sweetening it you will want to stabilize it with sulfite and sorbate.

It is getting much clearer day by day. I just didn't want to bottle it to soon and then it possibly start working again then have to clean up a huge mess and not to mention all the time and money that would be wasted

usually you want it to be clear before bottling. It will not clear in the bottle.

Well it's been over 5 weeks and it is still cooking. Any idea how much longer I have to wait. It has been cooking at this pace for about 2 1/2 weeks now

Fermentation works at its own pace. Also, you can be finished with your ferment, but still get a few bubbles. Are they steady, and at what frequency?

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my 30 plants; though I did just plant 15 Pineapple Crush strawberries. Yummy!
