I get my blackberries out at about day 5-7, as the fruit can sort of float and rot at the top. I rack to secondary when the SG 1.010 or so, and top up and then rack again when sediment is more than 1/4" thick.

So I racked the blackberry and the apple this morning ran most of the lees through a coffee filter (what a pita!) got rid of most solids. Tasting the both the blackberry has a rather bland flavor higher alcohol so I may blend some flavor if necessary, but the apple tastes pretty good. With the solids gone how long should I wait before racking again?
