Your friend is a brave soul. I don't think I could drink it at all using that method. It would be GREEN tasting, very green. To each their own, but I couldn't do that on a bet.

There is very little wine that I make that I would ever want to drink without any aging. It's incredible how much better it tastes after even just a few months.

Give some serious thought about letting it age, at least until it is clear.. although you should rack it into a glass container for aging, plastic is too oxygen permeable.

Hope it works it for you !
