It's common to degas in kit wines, which are rushed to bottle, but not for other wines.
Ah...thanks for the pointer. Us newbies have so much information out here, it's hard to know what is needed, and what is meant for a different process.
I didn't spin it much - after I noticed nothing was happening. So, I didn't oxygenate too bad.
I'm in no big rush to bottle - I was just helping it along...figuring I was doing good!!
